My friend and I attended this fantastic show Sat 16th June 2018.
The weather was very cold and windy, this added to the atmosphere of the performance, the evening show tour through the mansion transported me back to the late 1880's. Maggie and Mr Duncan...More

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

So great to hear you enjoyed our show Gary. And thank you for being responsive when we 'picked on you' in a kindly way. Hope to see you again.
Recently went to see"What was that?" at the Werribee Mansion. It was a great night out. The story line was good and it moved along at a good pace. The 2 Actors were excellent and really engaged with the audience. The night was topped off...More

Thank you so much for the feedback. Isn't it a magnificant setting! As performers we never take that for granted and love interacting with the audience. Hopefully see you again one day.
What a great show! Fun, entertaining and light hearted with a mix of history and comedy. We got to see the Mansion in detail and interact with the performers.
Can't wait to see your other production next month and I'm bringing friends!

Thanks for the feedback. Yes, I never underestimate how lucky I am to perform in such a stunning venue. Glad you enjoyed the show. See you soon.
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

Thanks for the feedback John. We're so glad you enjoyed the night. Our other show 'Down to Earth' is performed at the old farm at Werribee Park. It's also comedy, history and spooky. Next show is Feb 10th ..... if you're keen, would love to...More
A fantastic interactive night at Werribee Mansion. We were taken on a fascinating journey and on the way learnt a great deal about the history of the mansion. The play was well written and brilliantly presented. It was filled with humour and a little drama....More
