Their delightful summer routine - fishing, picking strawberries, enjoying old memories, is gven 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 gris with norman and Chelsea's mutual bitterness while Norman blossoms with his chance to mentor young Billy. The turbulant 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.

BEHIND THE SCENES

The production of a play at the 1812 Theatre involves far more people than just the actors on the stage. For example we need set builders, backstage crew, backstage management, costume making, front of house helpers, technical crew/bio box/lighting and sound technicians.

All these functions are provicec by a small army of volunteers.

WHY DO THEY DO IT?
It is an extremely rewarding experience, it builds lifelong friendships. It enables them to utilise existing skills as well as develop new ones. They have a lot of fun and laughs and enjpy 7being part of a production which they are proud of and which brings enjoyment to the many people who attend the performances.

Whether it's a barbie in our backyard area, movie nights or other get togethers, we realise our volunteers are our lifeblood and a pretty social bunch too.

If you are aged between 14 and 80 and this sounds like something that you may be interested in doing, please read on to find out what is involved behind the scenes.

SET BUILDING:
No production is complete without the set on the stage. Thr building of the set involves design, painting, carpentary, furniture restoration and electrical work. This could range from hanging a picture to building a staircase.

Experienced chippies. electicians, artists, designers are always welcome along with people who are eager to learn ad willing to get their hands a bit grubby.

While the sets are being built the costumes designed and made. Working with the director this involves machine and hand sewing and fitting of outfits on the actors.

BACKSTAGE:

This involves the changes made to the sets on stage during the live performances. This could range from providing an empty cup to an actor at a critical time before thay go on stage to changes between acts while the lights are down.

If you can tip toe in the darkness and enjoy the adrenalin rush of being involved in a live performance, without being an actor on stage, this is for you.

FRONT OF HOUSE:
The face of 1812, you could be the lovely lady or gent greeting our patrons at the door, guiding them to their seats and making sure the audience refreshments between the acts and after the performance are ready to go when needed.

At the end of the evening you get a chance to mingle with the actors, director,and other behind scenes volunteers.

TECH CREW//BIO BOX:
The designers choreograph the lighting and sound as part of the preproduction of the play. The technical crew and bio box operate the soud and lighting during each performances. You may be working with special effects?
With a wide range of lighting and sound equipment available, working in time with actors on stage, its a great experience to be the one bringing the stage alive with massive claps of lighting and rumbling thunder or the soft chirpd in a lush foredt dcene.

Whether you experienced or simply full of enthusiasm and ready to learn, thios may be for you.

Organ, totally besotted by Tartuffe's charms, plans o give him not only his fortune, but his daughter;s hand in marriage.

2019 Season

Death by Eating

is about Big Foood - about compnies producing packaged foof and drink products we consume.
Experts argue a lack of fresh fruit and veggis in our diet impacts our health , and warn that millions of people suffer due to bad diets and overeating.
the play begins in the boardroom of Big Tobacco, morphs into Big Food, then morphs again.
Many people oppose the nanny state and want the government banned from their kitchen. But if people consume legal products and get sick, who pays for their reatment? If tobacco was invented in the 21st century, would it be legal? If kids today are obese, how healthy eill they be in a decade or two? Don't worry.
We discover the answers when our four characters in search of a buck, budkle down to sell you your soul.
Death by Eating is a comical exposure of how we swallow the palaver about pavlova, and the baloney about baloney. So eatm drink and be merry because the play may be total codswallop; although with fries.
Season: November 7 - 8 & 14 - 16, 2019,.
