Notes on this season:

  • By now, you may have noticed that some of our programs take place off-site. This is because, in the very near future, QPAC will be getting a long-awaited makeover. You can expect a revamp to the performing arts center, in order to address structural limitations, and accommodate patrons with disabilities. And that's not all. Changes to the theater's seating, concession, box office, lighting and sound will also be noticeable. As promised, we are evolving to become an even more dynamic community cultural arts center. This season is the perfect opportunity for you to look down new paths and enjoy more of the diverse basket of opportunities that QPAC has to offer. If planned renovations commence during the current performance season, events may be relocated to other local performance venues, no more than 8 (eight) miles from our location in Bayside. Venues will be accessible, have ample parking, and be able to support the technical needs of our programs.
  • Tickets (including subscriptions), will not be refunded in the event we are required to relocate a program.
  • Tickets purchased in specific locations (front orch., mezz., etc.), will be accommodated to the best of our ability.
  • Due to the remodeling of the theater, and likelihood that some events may be relocated, management was unable to book a ballet or full-scale opera this season. These programs will be reinstated upon the completion of the renovation to our theater.

All programs, artists and dates subject to change!
