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!


NEXT AUDITION:

THE ADMIRABLE CRICHTON

J.M. Barrie's delightful comedy about class and nature

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?

What's a "panto"? Hilarious, laugh-out-loud fun
for the WHOLE family!
Laughs for the kids -- laughs for the dads --
laughs for the moms and the grannies, too!

A 200-year old English tradition that we are having a BALL with!

Our April/May 2020 production

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"!

October 11, 12, 17, 18, 19, 24, 25, 26 at 8:00 p.m.

J.M. Barrie's

THE ADMIRABLE CRICHTON


J.M. Barrie, of course, wrote Peter Pan and some see this earlier play as a sort of warm up for that -- a group of upper crust Brits (and their servants) arrive on a desert island to find that tables can be turned.

A delightful, laugh-out-loud comedy.

Think of Gilligan's Island with British accents --
and a touch of Downton Abbey thrown in!

It's the most genteel of class wars,
and it involves a lot of tea.



February 14, 15, 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, 29 at 8:00 p.m.

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.
