Living Lecture: Macbeth (NEW).

“[The most enjoyable part was] Being able to be so close to the performance, and seeing the expressions on the actors’ faces.” - Student, 2017 Living Lecture

Barking Gecko Theatre is Western Australia’s locally cherished, nationally significant company that creates and tours world-class theatre for children and families.

Barking Gecko inspires audiences of all ages to embrace a creative life full of curiosity, empathy and play.




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.
