BarnDoor Productions, Perth's original community theatre

 

Our 25th Anniversary Season is a season celebrate!



Our original scripts are being produced nearly around the globe.

Our audiences at home are seeing some of the best community theatre (nay, we'll say, best theatre) they'll ever see.



2019-2020 is another season of all-new scripts.
We've got an very exciting lineup of great theatre --

scripts, music and more are below. 

All we need is you!


NEXT AUDITIONS:

PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE

We need A LOT of people for our April/May musical -- actors-singers as well as musicians!

AUDITION DATES: Monday, January 13 and 20 -- assigned time slots for this one



Our 25th Anniversary season

The "little theatre that everybody meant to get to"
is stronger that ever!


Drama, comedy, panto, mystery, classics and an

"out-of-this-world" new musical!


The red highlighted titles are links

Our spring production

Yes! It's a rock'n'roll musical based on
THE WORST MOVIE OF ALL TIME!

We've uploaded the script AND music!
Click on the title above!

Ed Wood's 1958 "classic" (for want of a better word) is just awful --
so awful no one bothered to renew the copyright --
which means it's now in the public domain.
So, naturally, we had to make it into a musical.

Eros and Tanna, two aliens from outer space,
plan to destroy the Earth by raising
zombie-vampires from the graveyards --
we're not sure how that's supposed to work, either.

Why are they doing it -- and can they be stopped?

It needs a BIG cast and a rock'n'roll band.

It's a "science fiction single-feature"!

It's camp!
It's silly!
It's got some great songs!
AND

It's in 3-D!!!!!



PERFORMANCES: APRIL 17 to MAY 3 2020

AUDITIONS: Monday, January 13 and 20

Because this is a musical, we need to do individual auditions for this one, so
contact us for a time-slot

Audition particulars are on the preview page (click the title above)


Our holiday panto

LITTLE RED
RIDING HOOD


Little girl goes into the woods --
little girl gets lost in the woods --
little girl has surprising adventures in the woods!

Our new holiday panto has a raft surprises and twists
to make it as much fun to perform as it is to watch --
and it's TONS of fun to watch!

We had one of our biggest overall audiences ever
and nearly our biggest single audience at FCT ever.
And all of them had a blast!
