    We loved the way the show integrated appropriate humour, role-plays and other activities to maintain the interest and engagement of ALL students without losing the educational purpose of the show or detracting from its factual content.

    The Show and Event

    We appreciated the effort to involve all students, not just a few or those who were loudest/most obvious!

    The Audience

    The teachers thought it was wonderful; we have not yet had an opportunity to gather feedback from students.

    Absolutely delighted to have this show in Tasmania, even when it was at just our school's request. As a small school, we cannot afford to have them often but will certainly be looking to book events in years to come.

    The students thoroughly enjoyed the show and they were engaged throughout the whole two hours. I was impressed with the discipline strategies used by the male actor to keep the difficult kids in line. The students learnt a lot and in such a fun way I am sure they will retain what was learnt for some time. A great educational experience! Thank you, Maureen Mandell

    Educational Value

    We really appreciated how the actors had the students interact with them so that they felt that they were a part of the whole Colonial experience. It was great that the actors willingly meet the younger children prior to the show starting so that they weren't overwhelmed or scared by the intimating characters that they played. The actors were prompt, friendly and professional in their performance. We had a great day learning and discovering more of what it was like to be a convict and an early settler. Many thanks for what you do. We look forward to organizing an incursion with you again. Sincerely, Elizabeth Little

    The Show and Event

    Just a comment from one of the other teachers that some parts dragged on a little too long but on the whole they did a great job in giving the students a good experience of what it would be like to be a convict coming to the new colony Australia.

    The Audience

    They loved dressing up as soldiers and other characters. The students loved the convict caterpillar line. They thought the actors were really funny but told them a lot of interesting things. They liked how they could sing an old song, Botany Bay.

    Review the booking process and Iconic Performances.

    I went to Old Sydney Town in the last couple of years that it was in operation and it was perhaps one of the most memorable days that I have had. I don't think I've laughed as much since. So I just want to say I'm really thrilled that you have taken on the initiative to still give thousands of students and adults this necessary experience. Thank you so much!

    Review the booking process and Iconic Performances.

    Being a small Stage group, we were told we were unable to book a full day performance as we had done in previous years, so this was disappointing. After speaking with the performers on the day, we were told it might well be possible and better value for money to do so next time. ============================================== CUSTOMER SERVICE MANAGER REPLY: ============================================== I am sorry to hear that you were provided with this information. We do allow all customers to book the whole day show, even if they do not have the minimum numbers required. However, if a customer/school was to book the whole day show, they would be required to pay the minimum cost of the show based on the minimum number of tickets required for that show.

    The Show and Event

    At the end of last term, we had the privilege of watching your Colonial performance. Our year 5 students were engaged for 2 hours!!! As teachers we found the experience very valuable and loved the student participation. Dramatizing made it so much more real for them. So thank you very much and we look forward to watching one of your longer presentations next year.

    The children really related to Anne Fowl the convict. They thought she was very funny, and approachable. The seargent was also very good, but the children liked Anne better. Tge students thought it was really funny. I liked the convict when she spun the flag around. The props were very good because they were real.

    The homour used to tell the history is wonderful. This show is Value for money. I would you recommend Iconic Performances to other organisations, and school. Thank you for an excellent experience for our Kindergarten to Year 6 students.
