‘Last of the Summer Wine’ now uncorked at 1812.

We now look out towards the village coming to life in our Lowe Auditorium where Foggy, Clegg and Compo are reunited for one last adventure in Last of the Summer Wine.

Foggy has designs on winning the affections of Constance, Nora Batty’s niece and the long-suffering fiancé of the hapless Gifford Bewmont. Foggy and Clegg invite the ladies around for an evening’s entertainment, but the duo are unaware that a mysterious flasher is stalking the local community.

Gifford has pledged to apprehend the flasher and has mounted all-night patrols in the village. But his efforts to capture the flasher lead to mistaken identities and even more chaos. When the flasher is eventually unmasked it turns out his intentions are benign, but not before our heroes are nearly undone by the enveloping madness.

Showing in the Lowe Auditorium – 3rd to 26th August, 2017.

  • I saw 'The Vicar Of Dibley' in Dec 2016 - twice! Absolutely loved it. The cast were perfect - from the way they looked visually to the way they spoke audibly. The sets looked amazing, too.Such a terrific show! Such a terrific show!

  • This was an outstanding production! Somehow it was even funnier than the well known TV production. All actors played their parts beautifully! I really think you could present this year after year and we, the audience, would not tire from it. Laughter is the best medicine and it certainly did me a lot of good. Well done!

  • What a wonderful experience ! Loved everything about the evening from the free parking, quality free program, sherry on arrival, opportunity to view the photographic exhibition beforehand, chilled water at interval (not served from plastic - thank you!), delicious supper & OJ at the close of the evening, the special touch of audience participation and that's even before mentioning the outstanding set, terrific performance and reasonable ticket price. Well done, once again, from an appreciative audience member.

  • First time to the 1812 Theatre and it was nothing short of fabulous. Charming venue and lovely staff who provided us with a perfect night out. The play was enthralling and the actors and actresses were brilliant and funny. Will be back for more in the future!

  • I brought a girlfriend along as I had been told by some friends how good the performance was. We were not disappointed, it was funny, the sound was very good, our seats were in the gallery and we could see the stage very well. Could not get over the complimentary supper and drinks - this is a credit to the 1812 theatre/volunteers, heard lots of people as we mingled saying the same.

  • I have been attending the major theatres in Melbournes city for many years. Unfortunately, their ticket prices have increased ridiculously high, so last year we have decided to give local theatre a try and all l can say is why did l not discover this sooner. So what I'm saying is that l am so impressed with the productions l have seen so far that l can not think of anything that needs improving. From the theatre to the cast and to the staff and volunteers all is top class. More people need to make the switch like me.
