2017’s Perth Autumn Studio Tour

The Perth Autumn Studio Tour opens its studio doors this Thanksgiving Oct 7-9th, 2017.

Our Tour is 25 this year! Come out to our gorgeous corner of Ontario and celebrate the boundless creativity and beauty our studios will be offering you this Thanksgiving weekend. Be sure to also plan a stop for a DEE-licious lunch at our local Brooke Valley School. Meals made with local ingredients and heart! Proceeds all go to support the school.

21 artists at 6 studio locations just west of Perth, give visitors the opportunity to purchase unique items directly from the makers. Studios are open Saturday – Monday, 10am -5pm. Visit the website for details and a downloadable map

Located within 25 kilometres of picturesque Perth, the Tour showcases one of Eastern Ontario’s finest selections of contemporary fine arts and crafts against a backdrop of Mother Nature at her best. The real heart of the Perth Autumn Studio Tour is of course, the creative process that allows us to produce the work we love. Some studios are able to give demonstrations but many are given over to the studio tour and guest artists so this is not possible.

Dates : Saturday, October 7 to Monday, October 9, 2017

Aristophanes’ 2400 year old anti-war comedy, in a brand-new, musical version. It’s still as funny, sexy, silly and thought-provoking as it was in Athens in 411 B.C.

BarnDoor Theatre Presents: “Ghost Stories”!



The Legend of Oliver’s Landing

A musical chiller
by David Jacklin

August 5-21

Ghost Stories is a full-on, Broadway-style musical, all based on a local legend.  It has been a huge success in numerous previous productions:

In 1833, John Oliver and his wife were making a comfortable living ferrying travellers across Big Rideau Lake at a place people called,  naturally enough, Oliver’s Landing. They were both murdered in a dispute involving a Native woman and their dead son. When the cabin was torn down, years later, a “large number” of skeletons were found in the basement.  David Jacklin has turned this local legend into a chilling, soaring piece of musical theatre, dramatic, funny and filled with exciting music.  A major hit in 1984 and 1992, it has been revamped for 2016 with some new music and an exciting new libretto.

Barndoor Productions presents : the Great Temperance Soirée


BarnDoor Productions presents “The Great Temperance Soiree”. An evening of harmony, comedy and sobriety by Janet Coward. PERFORMANCE DATES: July  8, 9, 10 ONLY.

This fun-filled show traces the rise and fall of the temperance movement in Perth in the 19th century.
Dull, right?  No way!

Taken directly from the pages of the Perth (Bathurst) Courier, it’s filled with laughs, surprises and a lot of music.

Join the “cold-water army” and battle for sobriety. This is not only a look at one aspect of Perth’s history, but an overview of the society that built our community.


Arrived. Experienced. Loved it! What an awesome troupe of performers. All so talented! And such a depth of material covered – all with humour, style and wit. I was just blown away by the performances. Musically one could only find this caliber at the NAC. But we are lucky – they are an integral centre of our community. Gotta love it!”  A.D. Perth
