As restrictions ease, the capacity permitted inside the Pilbeam Theatre auditorium has increased. This makes it harder to maintain physical distancing in our foyer spaces.  Patrons are encouraged to wear a mask while entering and exiting the auditorium, and moving through the foyers. This is not compulsory but recommended by Queensland Health. Regular cleaning of all surfaces and touch points is still being undertaken, and hand sanitiser is available throughout the building for patrons use.

BEN ELTON announced back in 2019 that he would tour Australia in 2020 with a brand-new stand-up show, Ben Elton Live. But we all know what happened next.

With the country just now opening back up Ben will hit the stage from March 2021 and has added new dates and eight new stops across Australia.  He last performed stand up in Australia in 2006 but returned to the stage with a totally sold out 75 date UK tour in 2019, drawing rave reviews.

Elton’s timing and phrasing remain impeccable, his structure is masterly’ ★ ★ ★ ★  The Daily Telegraph

'Just give him a stage and a microphone and Ben Elton is the best. No contest' The Sunday Times

'There is nothing, absolutely nothing to beat Ben Elton live!' Evening Standard

Ben Elton exploded onto the comedy scene more than 30 years ago, hosting Channel 4’s groundbreaking Saturday Live. Since then Elton has achieved huge success as a stand-up comic, author, playwright, actor and director.

He's written television shows such as The Young Ones, Blackadder 2, Blackadder The Third, Blackadder Goes Forth, The Thin Blue Line, the famous ‘exam’ episode of Mr Bean, the recent UK smash hit Upstart Crow and many more, as well writing and directing two feature films: 2000’s Maybe Baby and 2017’s Australian-made Three Summers. Last year he wrote Kenneth Branagh’s critically acclaimed biopic of William Shakespeare All Is True which starred Judi Dench and Ian McKellen. On 7 February 2020 the live theatre production of his hit BBC TV series Upstart Crow opens on at The Gielgud Theatre in London’s West End.

A highly respected author, Elton has published 16 best-selling novels, six of which became number one bestsellers.

Elton is also widely known for his writing for the stage which includes three smash hit West End plays and the global phenomenon We Will Rock You based on the music of British rock legends Queen.  A serial award winner, he has won three BAFTAs, two Laurence Olivier Awards, The Royal Television Society Writer’s Award, The Golden Dagger UK Crime Writer of the Year AwardThe Critics Circle Award for Best Musical and the Eurovision Golden Rose D’Or Lifetime Achievement Award.

As Ben says: "The last time I toured I was still smarter than my phone. Things have definitely taken a funny turn."
