The RPAC audience will join the stage with its performers in a series of Stage Sessions from February 4 to 12.

The sessions features 10 performances in an intimate cabaret style and offers an opportunity for performers to debut new shows and gain stage experience, learning business and performance skills.

The mini concert series is part of a new initiative to encourage and support new acts and actors and embrace the creative Redlands coast community.

Performances include theatre show Alexandra by Andrew Tuttle at 6pm on February 4. At 8pm, Eat Drink Swipe will be performed by Claudia Pereira and Lachlan Greenland.

As a seasoned cruise ship performer, Ms Pereira said it would be a different feeling performing on a stage that doesn't rock.

"We've not done the show before but we just wanted to be adventurous and go for it," she said.

On February 5, there will be Yoyo Tuki at 6.30pm featuring the music of the Rapa Nui culture, followed by local band Radioceans featuring their originals at 8.30pm.

Band member Curtis Luxton said it was a privilege to be able to perform the band's original songs to a captive audience.

"We are super excited to play originals in our home town. We have recently plasyed at the Redland sporting club and RSL, but this is different. This is us having a chance to share our hard work put into writing our songs and people paying attention," Mr Luxton said.

On February 6, pianist Alex Raineri performs with soprana Jenna Robertson in Around the World while at 6.30pm, Rockit Productions features its corporate team in Not Another Love Song. At 8.30pm, comedy and tragedy will be shared in Lesbian Love Story.

Rockit's Shaun Kohlman said he was delighted to have this opportunity, a first on the RPAC stage in this capacity.

Lesbian Love Story performer Natasha Veselinovic said this was an opportunity for her voice to be heard.

"We hope to put this show into the Melt festival at the Powerhouse in May. The show is song and conversation telling stories from all over the world," Ms Veselinovic said.

Georgie Taylor presents Stages of a Crush at 8pm on February 11 and Sheldon College Soul Band presents Popular Music at 6.30pm and For the Girls will be performed at 8.30pm on February 12.

Sheldon College student Zeph Chambers said taking a performance outside the college took it to a new level.

"It's a new acoustic and a new audience," he said.

Tickets are from $25 to $29.50 and can be booked on or 3829 8131.
