#Professional Performing Opportunities
Since 1999, The Empire has produced mainstage musical productions, establishing a reputation as an industry leader and prestigious option for local performers and backstage crew looking to further their exposure to a professional performance environment.
With the aim of providing high quality musical theatre entertainment as well as valuable opportunities for actors, singers, musicians and dancers to work with a professional production team and creatives, The Empire's major production is a significant contributor to the continued development of the arts in our region.
Our team of experienced and creative staff work hard alongside the talented group of on stage cast and behind the scenes personnel including backstage crew, costumers, makeup artists and more, to bring a professional grade performance to our local audiences.
We are committed to staging challenging professional level performances, utlising the talent within our community and bringing the magic of live theatre right to our audience's door.
Bringing audiences from both the Toowoomba region and beyond, our productions are always well supported by a large number of ticket purchasers, allowing us to reinvest in the future of the arts in the Darling Downs.
Open auditions for our annual productions are generally held in October and November for performances the following year.
