Highlife Magazine - www.highlifemagazine.net - Empire Theatre 2016 Launch Line-Up

The Empire Theatre, in Toowoomba, has created the perfect cure for the post-Christmas blues with their exciting 2016 launch season. Featuring a huge selection of diverse and exciting options, Empire Theatre aims to become the next place-to-be for fabulous entertainment.

The Darling Downs are a-buzz with the mention of the new Legally Blonde the Musical production put on by the theatre, with the hilarious song and dance spectacular expected to draw major crowds.

Empire Theatre’s general manager Kerry Saul said that Legally Blonde embodied everything that the theatre was working towards.

“We are looking forward to delivering a production of the high quality we have become known for,” Saul said. “Legally Blonde has an incredible creative team with a director of international repute in Morgan Dowsett, a highly experienced and talented musical director in Julie Whiting, and an incredible Brisbane-based choreographer in George Canham.”

The early 2016 season will also include performances by Guy Sebastian and Icehouse, the Aboriginal Comedy Allstars, children’s programs like Andy Griffiths’ The 52-Storey Treehouse, and a sampling of Shake & Stir Theatre Company’s iconic adaptions of Wuthering Heights and Tequila Mockingbird, among many others.

Saul said that though the theatre planned to start the year with a bang, locals could expect even more fantastic shows throughout the year.

“The 2016 season is very broad in what it has to offer, and while there are many performances announced as part of the 2016 Season launch, rest assured there will be many more shows going on sale as the year progresses.” Saul said.

The Empire Theatre is also offering a special 2016 Empire Card which allows for discounted ticket prices, special offers and bar purchases, as well as additional benefits including special offers with Fitzy’s on Church and Toowoomba’s chocolateria Cioccolato.
