The 1812 Theatre joins forces with The Australian Cancer Research Foundation

The 1812 Theatre has joined forces with The Australian Cancer Research Foundation to help raise funds for cancer research.

The ACRF’s funds research into ALL types of cancer, in only the best research institutes right across Australia. Funding applications are assessed on their potential to make ground-breaking progress in cancer treatment, diagnosis, prevention and/or cure, by an esteemed scientific committee of Australian cancer researchers, including Professor Ian Frazer (co-creator of the cervical cancer vaccine and 2006 Australian of the Year).

ACRF’s mission is to end cancer by providing world-class scientists with the equipment they need to improve prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer.

The 1812 theatre is proud to be supporting the ACRF in its fund raising activities.

As part of this initiative theatre patrons will now have the option to donate to the ACRF when attending an event at the theatre or when booking a theatre ticket online.

We look forward to making a positive contribution to this very worthy organisation and appreciate the support of the theatre community in this endeavour.

‘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.

Also On – The Crucible – Centrestage Youth Theatre

Our Youth Theatre is also back with their second production for the year with The Crucible. Sporting one of our largest Youth Theatre casts, they have made this production their own and are sure to provide a great night of entertainment.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Swamp Fox Productions and cast and crew of 'Strands' made this playwright extremely happy. I loved the production. What a team! The actors were sublime. And the Bakery@1812 is now one of my favourite Theatre spaces. Thanks so much for your bravery and commitment to producing great nights out. Will be back.

  • 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.
