BarnDoor Productions, Perth's original community theatre


BarnDoor Productions is NOT your grandmother's little theatre!

Our original scripts are being produced around the globe.

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

All we need is you!



A new staging of a new novel of an old theme. Men, women, youth, children.

Our winter 2021 production

To a quiet town, danger comes


The 1954 film (starring Frank Sinatra) that some tried
to claim led to Kennedy's assassination.
It didn't, of course, but the questions it raised are
even more urgent now than they were 60 years ago.

This is, to our knowledge, the first stage adaptation of the now public-domain movie -- and it's tense, gripping and entertaining.

PERFORMANCES: February 12 to 28, 2021

5 men, 2 women, 1 boy (8-10)

November 3, 7:00 p.m.


Bob Cratchit (you remember him) finds himself thrown into the dark underworld of pre-Victorian London on that Christmas
and must fight for his life and his family while
Scrooge is having fun with ghosts and spirits.

There is not one spirit in this gritty, believable and exciting story.
There are familiar characters (from Christmas Carol and other Dickens works) as well as new characters that are very 'Dickens' at heart!

Not a dramatic reading, but not quite a full-on play, either,
it's the first look the public can have at a new, upcoming novel!

Up to 5 men, 5 women, 2 young men, 2 young women, 2 kids.

Are you kidding me?
What better way to finish off our 25th season -- even if it's in our 26th?

Need we mention that are some REALLY good roles for young people?
