Central Queensland Regional Performing Arts Foundation aims to provide Performing Arts experiences and opportunities so to enhance the cultural life of the residents of the region promoting the Performing Arts for the benefit of the Central Queensland community.

Central Queensland and Rockhampton’s Pilbeam Theatre has been the starting point for many now truly international careers in the Performing Arts. Whether as performers or as artistic and creative leaders the experience gained, talent nurtured and vision inspired by that early contact with the arts can be traced back to the opportunity to see and enjoy, in our community, the best that the performing arts has to offer.

We are truly indebted to the visionary group that thirty years ago indentified the need for a dynamic regional community to have a Performing Arts centre such as the Pilbeam Theatre and the Central Queensland Regional Performing Arts Foundation has been established to build on that vision and ensure that our community continues to have access to Performing Arts opportunities that inspire, challenge and develop our cultural leaders of tomorrow.
