Comedy with heart Comedy with brains Comedy with sass

1812 is 21 years old.  We can legally drink, get a pilot’s license in England, gamble in Iowa and get married without our parents’ consent in Mississippi.  Finally.


Turning 21 is promising, however, not only to be a season of celebration but a time to re-affirm our dedication to our all-comedy mission.  Now more than ever, the world needs more comedy.   And this year we invite you to join us for a season of comedic theatre that will make you think, sing, puzzle, ache, rejoice, rise up and, of course, laugh.


I hope you will subscribe to 1812 and help us celebrate our 21st year in style.
