On Golden Pond – Tickets Now On Sale

On Golden Pond is a classic American comedic drama that’s every bit as touching, warm, and witty today as when it debuted off-Broadway.

Retired couple Ethel and Norman are spending their 48th summer at their vacation home on Golden Pond, in the woods of Maine. Their delightful summer routine–fishing, picking strawberries, enjoying old mementoes, is given a bitterly comedic edge by Norman’s unreliable memory and cantankerously morbid statements.

When their daughter Chelsea visits for Norman’s 80th birthday, bringing her boyfriend Bill and Bill’s teenage son, Billy Jr., the whole family must come to grips with Norman and Chelsea’s mutual bitterness, while Norman blossoms with his chance to mentor young Billy.

The turbulent relationship between father and daughter, the generation gap between young and old, and the difficulties of a couple in the twilight years of a long marriage, all combine in a play that effortlessly illustrates the hilarious, heartbreaking, human moments of which life is made.

Showing in The Lowe Auditorium – 20th February – 14th March, 2020

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 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!

  • 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.
