THE BOOK OF EVERYTHING BRINGS MAGIC TO THE LOWE AUDITORIUM @ 1812
Nine year-old Thomas can see things no one else can: tropical fish thriving in the Amsterdam canals, trumpeting sparrows and even a hailstorm of frogs. He also sees the unhappiness of his family; the violence in his father, and the pain that lingers in people long after the war is over. All this – good and bad; Jesus, the angels, the Bottombiter, the startling Mrs Van Amersfoort and a beautiful girl with a leather leg – he carefully records in his magical and hopeful Book of Everything.
This funny and deeply touching story was created especially for young people by one of the Netherlands's most popular children's authors Guus Kuijer. Playwright Richard Tulloch's sensitive adaptation of this classic children’s story has produced an enchanting and beautifully rendered play, literally for all ages.
So bring your kids, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, or even just your inner child, for a theatre experience like no other.

'FORMAL' - A TEENAGE ROCK MUSICAL
1812's YOUTH THEATRE IN THE BAKERY@1812
It’s the 100th Anniversary of Marydale Secondary School, and its current students are attending the annual dance; their Formal - at which it is announced that this will be the final dance and the final year for the school. It is to be replaced by a new and exciting school with better facilities.
Through a twist of fate, four students are inadvertently locked in a cloak room, where the rich history of the school and its past students is played out before them. The history of their town, and of their families. They realise that no matter what era you are born in, people are essentially the same; and what is truly important to them becomes clear.
Perhaps they can secure the survival of their school and its future.
Playing in the bakery@1812 - 15th July - 18th July. Tickets are available now though our website via the link below.
