Wishing you a Merry Christmas for 2017 from 1812 – Plus a great gift idea!

Our final show of the year has come to a close with the Nuns from Nunsense now able to take a hard-earned break.

We are looking forward to all the things Christmas has to bring while we enjoy a little time off – mince tarts, advent calendars (you have to treat yourself a little each day!), Christmas pudding, and most importantly spending time with loved ones.

It’s been an exciting year at the 1812 with a lot more than our season productions gracing the 1812 this year.

With our regular Music Afternoons, the Spoken Word evenings, Youth Theatre and our involvement with Knox Councils ‘Immerse’ festival, its been a great and busy year.

At this point we would like to take the opportunity to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas, and a safe, happy festive season.

We look forward to seeing you again next year.

Have a great Christmas break!

The 1812 Theatre.

The Musical Comedy ‘Nunsense ‘ about to break into song at 1812! Some Shows Already Sold Out!

Our Season Five production of ‘Never The Sinner’ has closed to amazing reviews, and with that, we now look to our final main production of the year!

Nunsense opens soon in our Lowe Auditorium and brings with it a lot of music, singing and good laughs!  With some shows already Sold Out, with others getting close don’t delay and end 2017 with a bang!
That’s not all at the 1812 Theatre, we still have our ‘Spoken Word’ and ‘Sounds of Silent’ short films to look forward to!

 

Nunsense begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials.

The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth grade production of “Grease.”

Here we meet Reverend Mother Regina, a former circus performer; Sister Mary Hubert, the Mistress of Novices; a streetwise nun from Brooklyn named Sister Robert Anne; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is a wannabe ballerina; and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, the nun who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head.

Showing in the Lowe Auditorium – 16th November to the 9th December, 2017.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!
