If you want to witness exhilarating theatre that invigorates the heart and inspires artists, come to La Boite – one of the leading theatre companies in Australia.

La Boite celebrates movement, the spoken word, music and digital expression.

The Roundhouse Theatre at La Boite is the only purpose-built theatre-in-the-round in Australia. It offers an intimate space that can be utilized as a thrust stage where audiences are seated on three sides.

The Roundhouse Theatre is a 400-seat home stage that provides a unique theatre experience.

The la Boite Mainhouse looks to new Australian work as well as fresh international theatre.

Meanwhile, La Boite Indie is one of Australia’s leading platforms for independent theatre. La Boite Indie nurtures sustainable independent theatre culture. Its space is given rent-free to artists and independent theatre companies.

Productions are by general admission so audiences can choose their own seat on the night of the performance.

Trip Advisor Contributor “3068Snow” has been to La Boite and describes it as “Good for the kids.”

“We were lucky enough to see Out Damn Snot with the kids and it was a blast. Kids loved being in the round and close to the stage. Even though La Boite's location's moved, it still retains the original feel. Actors were fab and we were all happy to see some live theatre.”

Trip Advisor Senior Contributor “JanCarol11” finds La Boite as too “cutting edge” for their taste.

“A little too cutting edge for hubby & me. We started going in 2007, and had several really good years of Australian production, original plays, and talented young actors. The actors are still talented, but it has gone the way of the weird, the surreal, and the ridiculous. When we quit making sense of the plays, had to work to figure them out, we figured they were too cutting edge for us. Pity, they really have excellent production values, and the Roundhouse Theatre makes for excellent shows. It's one thing to be Cutting Edge, another to be Bleeding Edge. I guess we found it was more on the Bleeding Edge side of things when we quit going. Plus we found ticket prices to be high - not for the quality of production, but in comparison to what we can get at our community theatre, for plays that we understand.”

Trip Advisor Contributor “Laura S” describes La Boite as “Great theatre.”

“It's a roundhouse theatre, which gives the director more creativity, which they always deliver on. Lots of alternative Shakespeare plays often shown.”

Meanwhile, Senior Trip Advisor Contributor “M M” calls La Boite as “Refreshing theatre.”

“Refreshing theatre, pushing the boundaries in terms of new content, but still mindful of the sensitivities of the Brisbane audience. Always leave feeling informed and entertained.”
