‘Strands’ Tickets Now on Sale!

Our first production for the year has just closed, with rehearsals already underway for Season Two.

In association with Swampfox Productions, “Strands’ is now well underway to take full advantage of our intimate ‘bakery@1812’ space, with the unique seating layout for this production ensuring this gripping story immerses you.

Playwright Peta Brady fuses together the poignant, wryly funny and private world of two adult sisters; one of whom is intellectually challenged and the other personally damaged by their childhood experiences.

A beautifully crafted and enduring play that will be warmly remembered long after the audience has left the theatre.

Showing in the bakery@1812 –  20th April – 13th May, 2017
In association with Swampfox Productions

  • I love a night out here in Upper Gully ...great performances, quaint building and art space, lovely atmosphere, friendly kind staff....and the drink on arrival and nibblies after the show is such a lovely touch...really can't wait for next year's program to be released.

  • 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!

  • This theatre is a gem at the foothills of The Dandenongs. The productions are excellent and the pre show drinks and post show supper are a treat.

  • 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.

  • It was our first time at the 1812 and we purchased tix for our family and my Dad for his 70th birthday. As HUGE fans of the vicar (I met Dawn French earlier this year!) I was not expecting anything too special to be honest. But we were all blown away by the production, the set, the professionalism and the frivolity of the night! To top it off, the supper was awesome. We did not actually have anything to eat as we had eaten dinner before the show but there was such a lovely selection. The immerse photo project was there too which just topped off our night! Fabulous job to everyone! Thanks for making the theatre accessible to all!
