This was our second time attending this production as we were given tickets for Christmas. It’s a very well performed show that has been going for 20 years. The actors are excellent and tell the history of the house in a very entertaining way. My only concern was that there was no social distancing going on. In rooms that said 6 on the door there were more than 20 at times. It’s worth a ticket just keep your mask on.

My daughter and I went on the 'What was that' production and thoroughly enjoyed it. The actors were fabulous - we were worried it would be bad acting but were happily surprised at the quality. Well worth it for the history and the fun. I don't scare easily but my (adult) daughter was certainly jumpy! There are genuine (sad/scary) stories attached to the history of the house.
Absolutely give it a go!

What an awesome tour with some truly entertaining actors bringing the mansion to live and adding a few scares along the way. Truly on of the better spooky tours Ive done to date. Highly recommend to anyone and everyone whom loves history with a ghostly twist. Well done to all actors and the crew, great night for all.

My partner and I recently stayed at the Werribee Park Mansion and saw the “What was that” production in the evening. The characters( Maggie and Mr Duncan ) took us on an educational, entertaining , funny and, sometimes spooky tour of the fantastic mansion. We both totally enjoyed the experience and would recommend it for people of all ages. Very well done!

My partner and I just saw the ‘What Was That’ production at the beautiful and spooky Werribee Mansion. So much fun! Interactive, informative, exciting & funny with the perfect touch of scare (not too scary though - I would totally feel comfortable taking any child 11+). The actors were warm, welcoming and brilliant. So great to end the night with a wine in the stunning parlour, take some photos and chat with the actors. A really lovely night and a great way to visit the mansion. Highly recommend!

Hubby was given this 'Experience' for his birthday so off we went to Werribee Park Mansion not really knowing what to expect. What a fun evening! Loved the performers! Maggie and Mr Duncan were great, comfortable in their roles and interacted with each other and the group very well. The beautiful mansion is the perfect setting and it was interesting seeing it in this way. A well acted show with some comedy and a few scary moments- for some members of the group in particular! Nice glass of bubbly at the end too. We had fun and would definitely recommend it to others....... although I was a bit sorry I didn't get to keep my stolen cigar!!

So glad you enjoyed the night, thanks for your feedback. You CAN keep the cigar, we should only take at the end if it's not wanted. I can post it to you - a good stocking gift for next year. It's a quality cigar.
