Update regarding The 1812 Theatre response to COVID-19.

Due to the escalation in Covid-19 restrictions currently being experienced in Melbourne, we are unable to commence the necessary preparation activities (rehearsals, set construction, etc.) associated with the remainder of our scheduled 2020 season, and thus we are advising the postponement of all remaining 2020 events, including our Season 6 play “The Shoe-Horn Sonata” & Season 7 “Dracula – The Bloody Truth”.
The restrictions necessary to combat Covid-19 are currently quite dynamic and the uncertain timing around future easing means it is not yet clear when theatre performances will be able to recommence in a safe and economically viable form. However, where possible it is our intention to reschedule shows that were unable to be performed this year to a similar time next year. Obviously, it is impossible for us to confirm dates, etc. at this time, but we wanted to share with you our current plan. We will advise current ticket holders of rescheduled show dates at a future time once confirmed. However, if you would prefer a refund, please contact the office 9758-3964 or
In addition, we will continue to monitor the situation, and should the situation improve and restrictions ease quicker than expected we will explore the possibility of staging a production later this year and advise you accordingly.
We apologise for the inconvenience caused, although we would like to assure our patrons that the health and safety of all who enter our theatre is always our highest priority. Since the suspensions of normal theatre operations we have been developing our Covid-19 operational plan; including increased deep cleaning requirements, changes to theatre process’s and procedures to support social distancing and the elimination of shared items, etc. to ensure when we are able to welcome you to the theatre again you can be confident we are prepared for these challenges and your safety is paramount.
Thank you for your understanding.

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • I saw 'The Vicar Of Dibley' in Dec 2016 - twice! Absolutely loved it. The cast were perfect - from the way they looked visually to the way they spoke audibly. The sets looked amazing, too.Such a terrific show! Such a terrific show!
