The Cairns Performing Arts Centre (CPAC) has two main performance spaces for hire along with a spacious foyer, rehearsal space, green room and dressing rooms, as well as catering areas.

The CPAC Theatre is the only proscenium arch venue in Far North Queensland. It stands alone in its capacity to host major presenting companies while also serving a valuable role in supporting local performing artists. This 941-seat theatre is ideally suited to opera, ballet and large-scale theatre events including musical theatre. The stage measures 27 x 13.5 metres and sits above a 38 square metre orchestra pit.

The CPAC Studio can seat up to 372 people and can be reconfigured by the automated flooring system to create raked seating, standing room or a level floor for tables. The versatility of this space enables a range of events from cabaret, contemporary or classical music, theatre-in-the-round, comedy, films, children’s shows and more.

CPAC is complemented by a complete event management team including marketing, ticketing, backstage and technical crews, plus patron services staff. All of our staff are passionate about delivering a Producer’s vision and creating memorable experiences for audiences.
