Wishing you a Merry Christmas for 2018 from 1812 – Plus a great gift idea!

Our final show of the year has come to a close with the Pink Panthers now having a good catnap away from the stage.

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 Spoken Word evenings, Sounds of Silent Movie Nights, Youth Theatre having two great seasons and an extra production with Till Death Us Do Part, it 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 Pink Panther Strikes Again – Now Showing!

The Pink Panther Strikes Again has been showing for a week now, with the audience and the reviewers loving it!

theatrepeople.com.au’s Alison Hilbig has to say:

Taking a film to a stage adaptation is never an easy task, but under the skillful direction of Dexter Bourke, the 1812 Theatre have managed to pull it off. This is a clever adaptation and fans of the original film will not be disappointed (and yes, the well-loved Pink Panther theme by Henry Mancini is included).

The Pink Panther Strikes Again is a thoroughly entertaining night of theatre for audiences of all ages, guaranteed to give you a laugh, and if you’re old enough to remember the original film version, stir up some hilarious memories.

Read the full review here!

Also – check out a great teaser trailer here!

About the production:

The world’s most unusual criminologist, Chief Inspector Jacques Clouseau, fights for his life and for the future of all mankind in the most bizarre and dangerous caper of his brilliantly successful and utterly clumsy career. Paul Dreyfus, once his long-suffering boss, now turned into a raving lunatic, holds the world at bay with the ultimate weapon, the Doomsday Machine. Dreyfus is out to get Clouseau, the man whose undeserved success has driven him crazy, and he threatens to vaporize continents if the nations of the world don’t deliver Clouseau to him alive or, if at all possible, dead!

Blissfully unaware that the army of deadly assassins is gunning for him, or that the beautiful girl who seeks him out is a Russian agent, Clouseau incredibly stumbles and slips by every attack. However, the world is running out of time because the increasingly frustrated Dreyfus, doodling with the Doomsday Machine, is running out of patience.

Showing in The Lowe Auditorium – 15th November to 8th December, 2018

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.
