#About the theatres
Widely known as the jewel in the crown of the Darling Downs, The Empire makes up the largest performing arts precinct in regional Australia and boasts several heritage listed and modern performance and function spaces. Renowned for its classic art deco architecture, our thriving precinct is a cultural and entertainment hub of the community.
As champions of experiences for, with, and by community, we understand the value in fostering an inclusive, diverse environment and developing the arts in our regions as much as possible.
We offer both the opportunity for our community to be entertained by what appears on our stages and to be part of the magic of live performance through our commitment to nurture, enable and inspire cultural growth and creative connections.
The Friends of the Empire Theatre Inc is an independent, close-knit community of theatre-lovers who support The Empire through volunteer duties and an annual membership contribution.
