At Barking Gecko Theatre we believe when children’s creativity is nurtured, their potential is endless!

Gecko Ensembles are Barking Gecko Theatre's weekly drama classes for children. It’s where self-expression leads to self-confidence, as children stretch their imaginations in exciting directions.

Gecko Ensembles focus on the learning that comes from engaging with drama processes. Children question, explore, imagine and create. Through exploring some of life's big questions children develop collaboration and communication skills and build resilience and empathy. They challenge themselves, listen to each other, learn new skills and most importantly, have fun!

Gecko Ensembles celebrate children’s diverse ideas, interests and imagination. Children act as our creative consultants, exploring the same content as Barking Gecko’s artistic teams are exploring in our rehearsal rooms.

Classes are facilitated by our Teaching Artists, who are accomplished industry professionals, passionate in helping young people discover their potential through drama.

Available for Little Geckos (5 - 7), Junior Geckos (8 - 12), Senior Geckos (Year 7 - 10) at a number of locations across Perth.
