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

Date :
July 8 – 10, 2016

The Lanark Trades Tournament


On Friday, May 13th, 2016, at 4:00pm, it’s the first of its kind – THE LANARK TRADES TOURNAMENT.

In support of the Perth Enrichment Program and have some fun with the Lanark Leeds Home Builders Association and anyone else who dare to challenge theirskills, we are excited to note that the Lanark Trades Tournament will be one of the Perth Settlement’s 200th Anniversary Events.

Local businesses and tradespeople are invited to submit teams to compete in timed relay events associated with the skilled trades; includes a beer garden!

Funds raised from the Tournament will be used directly to support the Perth Enrichment Program for Older Adults and its clients as well as build camaraderie between local Trades businesses.

19Two teams will run head-to-head through a relay of events in a tag-team style (e.g., one team member completes the first event, then passes the baton to the next team member who completes the second event, then passes the baton to a third team member who completes the third, etc.) There will be a series of stations (expecting 9) in which a team member is chosen to compete in the individual task. The top two teams will meet in the finals where each team will compete to build the best picnic table in the shortest time.

The cost for entering a team is $250.00
Student Rate: $125.00
Teams are encouraged to dress in company attire.

A cash beer tent will be available during the hours of the tournament.

You will find the rules of the tournament here.

Self Help


Studio Theatre productions presents « Self Help ». There’s a body in the study, a detective in the hall and a nosy reporter prowling the second floor. What are stressed out, self-help gurus Cindy and Hal Savage to do? Make out behind the bar, of course. Everything about this wacky Norm Foster comedy is larger than life could ever be.

Second rate actors who are reduced to performing at a cheap dinner theatre somewhere outside of Flin Flon, Cindy and Hal are bored and discouraged. They long for that big break that will transport them to stardom. They decide to reinvent themselves as evangelists of self-awareness, a brash and brassy duo dispensing platitudes and selling their books to the emotionally and socially disadvantaged, achieving overnight success.
But what happens when there’s trouble in paradise, when Hal and Cindy lose connection with their own, now comfortable lives? That’s where playwright Foster leaps out of his usual situation comedy and into the world of the full-blown, black-hearted and very funny farce.
Tickets: $22 at The Book Nook (cash only)

About the Perth Fair

The Perth and District Agricultural Society was founded in 1845. Many things have changed over the years, including the name and location of the society. One thing that has remained is the dedicated volunteer base which has supported the organization over the years.

Did you know? – The Perth and District Agricultural Society is a non-profit organization that hosts the Perth Fair on Labour Day weekend in Perth, ON. The organization is made up of hundreds of volunteers who come together to present a balance between agricultural and entertainment events.

We continue to build upon tradition while embracing the future and look to bring the best possible Fair to the Perth Fairgrounds. Have you considered volunteering? Become a member of a strong volunteer based organization. Please contact us at .
