Regional Lady Sings the Maroons THIS IS QUEENSLAND
Lady Sings the Maroons - Queensland Day Special: Roma Street Parklands Information
The Roma Street Parkland has been designed so it can be easily accessible and enjoyable for everyone. For the performance of Lady Sings the Maroons at the amphitheatre, we recommend using the right-hand side entrance opposite the auditorium. Wheelchair seating will be available on the front left facing the stage.
The Roma Street Parkland amphitheatre has concrete and grass steps for audience seating. Please bring a blanket or cushion to sit on. The ground may be damp if it has rained previously. More seating is available on the grass behind the amphitheatre style seating. Please bring your own picnic blanket or chair if you intend to sit in this area.
Food & Beverages
Please note that this is a BYO, non-licensed event. Please bring your own picnic and soft drinks, and enjoy the performance!
The Osteria Roma (345 Wickham Terrace) offers take-away for this event as well as pre-performance dinner from their all-day menu. View menu

Along the 2023 regional tour, Opera Queensland invites members of the local communities to join a regional community chorus or express their interest to become a local support act.
Regional Community Chorus
For the performances in Caloundra, Bundaberg, Gladstone, Rockhampton and Roma, members of the community can join a local community chorus to perform with the cast. Singing experience is of advantage but not required.
Prepare with fellow local singers and online tutorials to practice in your own pace. On the evening before the performance or on the performance day, your Regional Community Chorus will rehearse with members of the cast to prepare for their moment in the spotlight. All rehearsal times will be communicated closer to the event with registered community chorus members.
To perform with the OQ cast, community chorus members will be required to sign a volunteer agreement ahead of the performance.REGISTER FOR COMMUNITY CHORUS

In Maryborough, Proserpine, Cloncurry, Winton, Longreach, Barcaldine, Blackall, Quilpie, Charleville and Goondiwindi, Opera Queensland invites singers and musicians from the local community to express their interest to become a local support act for Lady Sings the Maroons. All artists will be employed for the performance by Opera Queensland and paid under the Live Performance Australia award rates. All artists must be 18 years or older at the time of performance and have full-working rights in Australia.
