Museum Theatre

Join us for a unique theatre experience as you are taken back in time to Brisbane during World War Two…

A thought provoking exploration of life at Newstead House during the World War II ‘American Invasion’ of Brisbane.
From late 1942 through to the end of WW II, our iconic landmark was commandeered by the American military
and occupied by the Photographic Detachment of the 832nd Signal Service Company.

The effects on our way of life were profound, with social & political influences felt today.

This innovative & immersive program takes place in a number of rooms, with attendees required to walk between scenes.

Various performance times are available at
