BarnDoor Productions, Perth's original community theatre

 

Our 25th anniversary season


Another season of ALL ORIGINAL productions!



Our original scripts are being produced from the U.K. to Australia, as well as in North America.
BarnDoor Productions is not just another local amateur night; our scripts are having an impact elsewhere
and you can see them HERE first!



In 1995, we started off with a special one-off production.
It's now 25 years later -- and, my, how the little baby has grown!


All we need is you -- on stage and in the audience!


WE ARE NOW CASTING:

Plan 9 From Outer Space

We need singers, dancers, actors, musicians and more for this NEW rock'n'roll musical!


Here's the lineup for  our 2019-2020 season

LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD


Our 2019 panto

Girl goes into woods; girl meets wolf;
wolf eats Granny; wolf eats girl;
yah-da, yah-da, same old story.

With two twists! Or is it three? Or maybe four?

"I hope you have good insurance! I think I broke a rib, laughing!"

A fun romp through traditional fairy-tale land and modern PC culture.

PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE


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

Ed Wood's 1958 "classic" (for want of a better word)
sci-fi horror movie is just awful --

-- so awful, it's considered the worst movie ever made!

-- so awful, we just had to make it into a musical.

It's camp!
It's silly!!
It's rock-n-roll!!!
AND
It's in 3-D!!!!!

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

AUDITIONS: January 13 and 20

GENERALS DIE IN BED


Our surprise smash hit from last spring brought back for another run.

Based on Charles Yale Harrison's undeservedly forgotten Canadian novel,
it's the simple, engrossing and very moving story of a young soldier in war.
One of our most praised productions ever.

"Brilliant! It must be seen ..."
"An amazing production! Theatre at its best. Do not miss!"
"... a stellar performance.  A masterpiece."
"I saw it tonight. I want to see it again -- RIGHT NOW!"

ONE BODY TOO MANY


a silly haunted-house romp based on a 1944 movie.
Originally written as a vehicle for Jack Hailey (aka Oz's The Tin Man)

Cyrus J. Rutherford, a screwball ... sorry, eccentric ... millionaire dies
and his heirs gather to split up the loot.

Instead, they end up splitting heirs.

Then brave insurance agent Albert Tuttle
solves the mysteries and sorts out the mess --
and, of course, finds romance along the way.

This is just silly, silly fun that will heat up the February chills
and get the 10W40 winter blood flowing.
