Welcome to Bairnsdale Production Line Theatre Company Inc

We have been a vibrant, growing, and active amateur theatre company for many years.

Every year we produce a familiar play and musical for our East Gippsland audiences, at The Forge Theatre in Bairnsdale. 


Supported by a diverse and talented group of actors, musicians, production team, and backstage volunteers of all ages, we are fortunate to have the talent that we have, in our region.


The reputation of our company and the quality of our productions are our main focus, which our theatre community audience has come to realise over the years.

We also appreciate and are grateful to our Patron, Wendy Beckett, and our annual sponsors, who support our ability to offer quality shows.

We very much look forward to seeing you at our next and future productions.

Thank you for appreciating theatre. It’s the greatest escape.

Yours in theatre, Rick Edney, President BPLTC

School of Rock

Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, book by Julian Fellowes, lyrics by Glenn Slater.

Rock got no reason, rock got no rhyme…you better get me to school on time! 


School of Rock is based on the hit movie and follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn an extra bit of cash by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school.


There he turns a class of straight–A pupils into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. But can he get them to the Battle of the Bands without their parents and the school’s headmistress finding out?

School of Rock will be performed in May 2023.
