Christmas Tree Spectacular at South Bank
From 18-23 December, step inside South Bank Piazza and experience a festive variety show unlike any other, complete with circus acts, singing, dancing and of course, your best-loved Christmas carols.
Taking place twice nightly at 5.30-6.15pm and 7.30-8.15pm, the Christmas Tree Spectacular is the star of the South Bank Christmas program and is guaranteed to ignite excitement for the 'Most Wonderful Time of the Year’.
The production aims to rejoice in the merriment of the festive season and highlight some of Brisbane’s celebrated musicians as they perform up, down and across an 8 metre high Christmas Tree stage, complete with eye-catching LED screen panels, lit with lyrics for crowd singalongs. On conclusion of nightly performances, guests are invited to capture photographs against the backdrop of the magnificent stage.
Each evening will showcase a selection of special guests as well as a set of core performers, including Claire Walters, RhettStar and Madalyn Millazo.
Claire Walters, also known as Franky Smart, has been singing professionally since the age of 16, making her debut in Musical Theatre alongside some of Australia's finest talent including Bert Newton, Patti Newton, Nikki Webster and Doug Parkinson.

In addition, he has a plethora of circus skills up his sleeve, from tumbling to acro-balancing, slapstick comedy and plate-spinning!
