For 140 years, Her Majesty’s has been the premier live theatre space for the Ballarat community.
Owned and operated as a business unit of the City of Ballarat, each year the theatre presents a season of touring professional theatre and music, which includes works from some of Australia’s best producing companies such as Bell Shakespeare, Opera Australia, Monkey Baa and Patch theatre companies and more.
Her Majesty’s also provides a performing home for Ballarat’s two major amateur musical theatre companies, as well as a venue for a large number of dance schools and for educational institutions' annual presentations.
For 10 weeks each year, it also becomes the hub for the Royal South Street Eisteddfod, the grand national eisteddfod of Australia.
As the largest-capacity seated venue in the centre of Ballarat, the theatre also welcomes large-scale gatherings such as conferences, funerals and other events that require seating for 800 or more attendees.
