‘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.

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

  • We always have dinner at the Royal beforehand, then stroll up to the theatre. It feels like being part of a huge family when we enter the doors. The welcoming smiles, not only from 1812 staff but the theatregoers as well, always lifts the spirits and our enthusiasm for the play we are about to be presented with.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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!
