Brisbane’s fabulous Real and Diverse Theatre (RAD) returns to QPAC, following last year’s brilliant production Technicolour Rumble at the Cremorne. This October RAD presents Quavers at the Playhouse. Quavers draws inspiration from the ensemble’s personal stories, ghostly fascinations and delight in live music from country tunes and jazz beats to haunting classics.

This is a tale of the quintessentially Brisbane music shop Quavers, which is doomed to face its end by the destructive bulldozers of the notorious Bean Brothers. Quavers siblings Tammy, Mavis, Stirling and Bob embark on a quest to save their famous store from greed, the excavator’s blade and ruin. The siblings seek help from famous musical ghosts and a spook with a swaying sickle.

Created and performed by the highly innovative RAD ensemble with a world-class production team of artists and musicians, Quavers is a Brisbane story that brings haunting joy, exquisite live music and unforeseen celebratory quick beats to the world.

Quavers is too irresistible to be missed!

Presented by Centacare in partnership with Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University.

Quavers is supported by Suncorp Stadium.
