Barking Gecko Theatre is Western Australia’s locally cherished, nationally significant company that creates and tours world-class theatre for children and families.
From our home in Perth, we create shows that celebrate children’s unique world-view and expansive imaginations. Barking Gecko’s shows bring together the finest artists to share unique stories that inspire curiosity, empathy and play.
Young people need spaces where they can come together, strengthen their unique voice and nurture their creative intelligence. Barking Gecko Theatre provides this opportunity through our Ensemble program. Weekly sessions take place in a joyful, safe and supportive learning environment where young people take imaginative risks, explore their expressive potential and make life-long friends.
Barking Gecko Theatre offers a wide range of opportunities for students to engage with the theatre. Discover our in-school programs, theatre excursions, school matinees and support for educators.
From Individual and Family Giving to Trusts and Foundations and Corporate Partnerships, we welcome your support for Barking Gecko’s endeavours, and in turn, connect children with creativity regardless of where they live or their economic circumstances.
