BarnDoor Productions, Perth's original community theatre

 
Our Facebook counter somehow got reset from over 500 to 0!  Give us a click and help us build it back up!
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 34th season of presenting theatre together and their sixth season at the Full Circle Theatre, Perth's only ground-level 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 new website featuring David's scripts and music is now online at:
www.playsfromdavidjacklin.ca

A note on tickets for BarnDoor Productions' shows:

We don't do credit cards. We ask for cash.  This saves both of us money -- lots of it.
Credit/debit card and "convenience" fees can add up to 25% to the cost of your ticket!

For a BarnDoor show, just phone, place your order and pay us in cash when you arrive
-- your tickets are guaranteed and it's a lot cheaper!

---> This is for BarnDoor Production's shows only <---
other events at FCT handle ticket sales as noted.

TRIFLES, TEA & TAPE


three plays about small things

Audiences have said the production is:
"Brilliant!"
"Magic!"

Find out for yourself!

 -- A woman is accused of killing her husband. While the men deal with the serious matters, two women attend to the trifles -- and solve the mystery.

-- A widow has a precious antique china saucer -- her beau may have the matching cup.  Is it love at first sip?

-- A man listens to old recordings he has made to sum up each year of his life.
What does a long life add up to?

Trifles, Tea & Tape
is serious, funny, chilling, musical, oh!, so different, and perfect summer fare.

Something you're NOT going to see anywhere else.
