BarnDoor Productions has been presenting live theatre in Perth, Ontario since 1995
and before that, as Perth Summer Theatre, back to 1983.

From outdoor classics to modern hits, from favourite "chestnuts" to original shows,
BDP has set the region's  community theatre standards since our first production
and built a reputation for high-energy, fast-paced, constantly surprising and always exciting theatre.

Producing Directors David and Janice Jacklin are now in their 36th season of presenting theatre together
and their eighth season at the Full Circle Theatre, Perth's only ground-level, fully barrier-free theatre --
and generally praised as the best performance space in town.

In 2012, the Jacklins were honoured with the
Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal
for service to the community
and the performing arts.

A website dedicated to David's scripts and music is online at:
