Frankenstein – Centrestage Youth Theatre Now On Sale

The 1812 Theatre is open and operating again – our Youth Theatre have rescheduled and are closing our production schedule for the year with the classic production ‘Frankenstein’.

About the production:

Haunted by the consequence of his greatest and most terrible achievement, Victor Frankenstein – a brilliant young scientist – returns to his Swiss chateau to live a private life of seclusion.

Distraught by the death of his younger brother, Frankenstein has no idea the extent of which he will be made to suffer. On the night of his wedding, he confesses his dark secret to his newlywed wife and relays the sequence of events that lead to the night that is certain to be his last.

Showing November 30th – December 11th, 2021

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 [email protected] is now one of my favourite Theatre spaces. Thanks so much for your bravery and commitment to producing great nights out. Will be back.
