Chaim’s Love Song – Tickets Now On Sale

We are down to the last week of our second season (in association with redfox3) Constellations, which has received amazing feedback and reviews. With great seats left, don’t miss out on your last chance to see this play at 1812.

Our third production for the year – Chaim’s Love Long is well into rehearsals, the actors are polishing up on their lines and the set is well on its way to completion.
With a story that will keep with you long after you leave the theatre, Chaim’s Love Song is not to be missed.

Why not make a night of it? With great discounts at some local eateries just for showing your 1812 ticket, it’s sure to please – especially with the complimentary light supper provided during the production.

About the production:

Chaim Shotsky, a retired mailman in Brooklyn, is an American Tevye who tells his life story to Kelly Burke from Iowa.  His exotic tale is rich with vitality.  His friends include a philosophical baker, a Holocaust survivor with many secrets, his son and daughter, a matchmaker to end all matchmakers, movie star pigeons and a host of Israelis.

Chaim’s life story takes us on a journey to discover what and who are valuable in life.

The play starts with Kelly Burke, a displaced Iowan, sitting on a park bench writing in her journal.  But Kelly has settled in the park to which Chaim Shotsky comes everyday to feed his feathered friends.  Eventually, through stories and memories, Chaim brings Kelly into his world.  Once she is there, Chaim leads her to explore the important questions about life, love and the stories we all have to tell.

Showing in The Lowe Auditorium – 17th May to 9th June, 2018

Tickets Now Available for the Journey that is ‘Constellations’

Calendar Girls opened our Season One for the year with great feedback and a lot of laughs.
We now look forward to our second season of the year.

Showing in our intimate [email protected], this production will take you on an unforgettable journey – definitely don’t miss out!

About the production:

Can one word alter the course of your life?

String theory, parallel universes and Sliding Doors moments set the scene for one of the most exciting new love stories of our generation.

This spellbinding, romantic journey begins with a simple encounter between a man and a woman. But what happens next defies the boundaries of the world we think we know. Roland knows a lot about honey. Marianne knows a lot about physics. With little in common, the probability of them meeting, let alone getting along, is slim to none. Yet in a single moment the possibilities are infinite, inexplicable and even miraculous.

Audiences watch as Marianne and Roland’s relationship unfolds across time and space, with each variation sending their relationship on an entirely new trajectory, questioning the difference between choice and destiny.

Science and romance collide in this unusual love story that is witty, fascinating and heartbreaking; and has delighted audiences in New York and London.

Showing in [email protected] – 5th April to 28th April, 2018

Calendar Girls Starts Our 2018 Season – Tickets Now Available

Rehearsals have now started for our first production of the year – Calendar Girls – and it’s already shaping up with a lot of laughs.
We hope everyone had a great holiday break, and we cannot wait to welcome you back to the theatre.

About the production:
When Annie’s husband John dies of leukaemia, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow WI members to pose nude with them for an “alternative” calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence.

The news of the women’s charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie’s friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame.

Based on the true story of eleven women who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukaemia Research Fund, Calendar Girls opened at the Chichester Festival Theatre and has since become the fastest selling play in British theatre history.

Showing in The Lowe Auditorium – 22nd February to 18th March, 2018

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Survey Response Attendee of The Vicar of Dibley 2016
  • 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!
