Her Majesty’s Theatre is one of Australia’s most historic theatres.

Opened in 1875 Her Maj is the oldest purpose-built theatre building in Australia to have been continuously used as a live theatre venue.

The building boasts a beautifully renovated double-balconied auditorium recently re-seated to offer both comfort and elegance, while boasting state of the art theatre equipment.

The Theatre offers an annual season of touring professional theatre productions, representing a selection of performances from some of Australia’s leading theatre companies.

The Theatre is hired by commercial entrepreneurs for tours by popular artists. It is also a community facility and is hired by local amateur companies and groups for the presentation of their productions, including musical comedies, school concerts and ballet recitals.

Since 1965, Australia’s largest and longest-running eisteddfod, the Royal South Street Competitions, have called the Theatre home and occupy the building between mid-August and early November every year.

Her Majesty’s has been owned and operated by the City of Ballarat since 1990. Today around 300 performances are presented each year. Tickets are sold through MajesTix, the Theatre Box Office, and information is available on the Theatre’s website.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
