The experience was great from start to finish. The show was full of interesting history and brilliant comic moments. It was really good to see and experience the mansion at night.

Hi Lynnette, Yes I think cold weather definitely adds to the atmosphere. Only two times in 15 years of performances was it full thunder and lightening. Incredible - imagine in the dining room! Lots of screams. Love it.

This was a fun night with lots of laughs. The two characters got everyone involved and as a bonus you got to see the Mansion at night in a very small group. This is a great show and a must do.

Thanks Liz, I never take for granted the beautiful house and all its history. Today I got to try on some of their stunning lady's costumes for a new show. I felt like a queen. Thrilled you enjoyed the show.

Went with a group of 8 and we all enjoyed the show. The Actors were talented and very friendly mingling with guests at the end of the production. I've seen the mansion before and done the audio tour (also well worth doing) but that was...More

Thanks for the feedback, yes it would have been a scary time at night in the mansion. When I pack up after a show I make sure I'm not alone when I switch off the lights - too many shadows.

The production of What was that? Is a superb production that you should not miss. Staged in the magnificent Werribee Park mansion, the backdrop is great for a period comedy/drama. The cast performs excellently getting great group involvement. The performance goes for an one and...More

This play is great! The actor-audience interplay is great and every frightful moment in this ghost house comedy production is followed by laughter. Truly a great way to enjoy a good interactive play whilst touring the Werribee Mansion.More
