Performing Arts calendar worthy of a song and dance
Published on 21 March, 2012
CQUniversity's School of Creative and Performing Arts has released its Calendar of Events for 2012, proving it's set to be a cracker year for musical, theatre and art shows across regional Queensland.
Major productions include the Dirty Rotten Scoundrels production in Mackay, Radar of the Lost Art in Rockhampton, Sarah Court and Matthew Marshall in Bundaberg and the Retrovert Concert Series in Noosa, plus many more performances, concert series and school productions along the way.
The Dean of the School of Creative and Performing Arts, Professor Matthew Marshall said performing arts had been well received in Queensland and the programs were proving more popular, with events being held across four CQUniversity campus footprints.
"Building on the success of the 2011 events program, we have an enhanced calendar this year with events extending to four CQUni campuses in Mackay, Rockhampton, Bundaberg and Noosa," Professor Marshall said.

"In addition to our regular music, theatre and art shows, we have collaborative events with community organisations in Mackay and Rockhampton as well as in conjunction with our partner Sunshine Coast TAFE at Noosa."
Professor Marshall said the quality of performances were a reflection of the hard-working staff and students within the School of Performing and Creative Arts and encouraged community support for the upcoming year.
"As usual our events calendar is an important way of showcasing the excellent work being done by the staff and students of the School, as well as international visiting artists and we would be grateful for as much public support as possible."
