Over 95 years of existence takes resilience and ingenuity.
La Boite is Australia’s longest continuously running theatre company, celebrating its 100th year of operation in 2025. Its mission is to create powerful connections between artist and audiences through stories that entertain, move, empower, surprise and transfix.
As Brisbane’s second tier theatre company, La Boite plays a vital role in the cultural landscape, occupying the space between independent theatre and Queensland Theatre, the state company. It provides a critical pipeline of new work across the performing arts sector in Queensland.
With a history of resilience and ingenuity, it has cemented its distinctive role as a cultural hub. Located within the Queensland University of Technology’s creative precinct at Kelvin Grove, Brisbane, La Boite is also home to the iconic 400 seat Roundhouse Theatre, the country’s only purpose built theatre in the round.
La Boite has a 95 year history of excellence, integrity, resilience and ingenuity. Much has changed over that time but La Boite’s appetite for development, transformation and renewal remains the same. La Boite has a proud reputation for developing artists and audiences - our purpose is to push the boundaries of theatre and create a pathway for local and national artists to mainstream stages in Brisbane and beyond.
La Boite plays a crucial role in the local, state and national arts sector as an incubator and producer of new work with a dedicated focus on the sustainability of Brisbane based arts practice from emerging to established practitioners, producers, and arts managers.
