After more than 20 years working hard on the action behind the scenes of Toowoomba's iconic Empire Theatre, Margaret Turnbull will take her final bows today.
Retiring from her position as Events Manager, Margaret has been a hardworking and valuable member of staff, dedicating a large portion of her life to the theatre she loves over the past 20 years.
After being a vocal supporter of the theatre's refurbishment, Margaret was employed as a casual Front of House manager before the Theatre re-opened in 1997 and has been a fixture in a number of different roles ever since.
From all the staff and supporters of the Empire Theatre, we wish Margaret well and thank her for her work and friendship.
