About us.

Barking Gecko Theatre makes exquisitely crafted theatre that inspires our audiences to imagine the world anew.

We are Western Australia’s locally cherished, nationally significant company making theatre for families and children aged 5 – 16 years. We assert our creative excellence through a compelling annual program of exquisitely crafted theatre that is both adventurous and surprising.

Why are we called Barking Gecko Theatre?

This small Australian reptile is a perfect fit for who we are. Although small, the Barking Gecko has a loud voice. It can run up a wall or over a ceiling and look at things from a totally new perspective. Barking Geckos or Underwoodisaurus milii are found on rocky outcrops, mostly in southern Australia.
