Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday dear QPAC. Happy Birthday to you. Today marked the 30th birthday of the Queensland Performing Arts Centre. When I turned the dreaded 5-0 this year, people (kindly) talked about improving with age. Wine improves with age, I'm not sure the human body does. I am, however, convinced QPAC just gets better and better. Drama Teen and I love QPAC. It's been one of his favourite spots since seeing The Wizard of Oz there when he was five. And that's the thing about our arts centre. It embraces all types of performing arts and has always made a concerted effort to embrace the youngest of audiences. So it is fitting that the 30th birthday party was an outdoor family celebration. It bucketed with rain mid afternoon but the young people seemed to enjoy singing in the rain. Doesn't that seem fitting for a performing arts centre?
