- The North Sea Boat Terminals Theatre Company will present an experimental production of All's Well that Ends Well at the Old Mill Theatre, South Perth, from 23-28 October at 8.00 pm with a matinee at 2.00 pm on 29 October. The production includes much of the Shakepeare text but also features puppetry, animation and live music.
- The WA Opera will present Verdi's Falstaff (basically the Merry Wives of Windsor!) at His Majesty’s Theatre, Perth, on November 3, 5, 8, 10, 12 at 7.30 pm
- Shakespeare WA’s 2012 season runs from 6 January to 4 February, with its annual "Shakespeare in the Park" season. Three plays will be presented: The Tempest, The Comedy of Errors and that screamingly funny send up The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) in conjunction with the Cut Snake Comedy Company. This will be a reprise of a 2011 success at the Subiaco Theatre Centre. (You can read the review I wrote for Artshub here. Other Shakespearean events I’ve reviewed recently include the Bell Company’s Julius Caesar and the WA Ballet’s The Taming of the Shrew.)
