Queensland Theatre is Australia’s third largest theatre company. Since 1970 we have been creating collective experiences that change lives. We present an annual season of the finest theatre from classics to contemporary international and Australian work.
We lead from Queensland in the development of new artists and new stories, in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander theatre, in education and youth participation, and in regional engagement and touring. In 2018, we achieved exceptional box office results and the highest Brisbane audience in 10 years. Queensland Theatre presented 388 performances to over 130,000 people, employed 303 artists, toured regionally and nationally, and had an annual turnover of approximately $14 million.
Our vision is to be the best theatre company in the country by our 50th birthday in 2020. By then, we will have contributed to the cultural conversation by creating the next Australian theatre classic. We will also be firmly established as the national theatre of first breaks.
