Covid-19 Update – Frankenstein – Centrestage Youth Theatre

The timing of Victoria’s 6th lockdown will unfortunately prevent the opening night of our Youth Theatre’s production of Frankenstein from going ahead as scheduled on the 10th August, and also prevent the following night’s performance on the 11th.
However, until additional information is released by the Victorian Government later this week, we will not know the full extent of the impact on the currently scheduled performance dates. Once we know more, we will advise of potential rescheduling/cancellations.

  • 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 [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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.
