Brisbane Arts Theatre
Time Out says
Brisbane Arts Theatre has sat up on Petrie Terrace as a monument to community theatre in the Sunshine State since 1961. An intimate 151-seat venue, it stages a year-round season of shows for adults and children and also hosts workshops in performance and musical theatre. Open auditions are held for many of its productions, offering pathways for newcomers to break into the performing arts. The company itself has been in existence since 1936 and remains proudly independent – in 2016 it became the first community theatre in Australia to take in $1 million in box office in a single year.
