Essence Productions, Werribee Park’s resident independent theatre company brings immersive theatre to the magnificent historic mansion and surrounds. Employing a core group of professional actors and backstage crew, they focus on bringing unique Australian stories to life through live performance.
A must see when visiting the surrounding attractions of Melbourne’s west.

Essence also creates original multi-award winning plays performed and toured around Victoria and interstate.

  • Based on the true stories of the Chirnside family (19th century wealthy squatters), this play combines history, scary elements and comedy. Two actors as 'Maggie' the head maid and 'Mr Duncan' the head butler will guide you through the mansion and the story unfolds as you move from room to room. This is an exciting event full of surprises and ends with a glass of sparkling wine or soft drink.
