The COLONIAL SHOW school incursion is a complete interactive educational show that allows children to experience what life was like back in the Colonial Times, during the Colonisation of Australia. With authentic equipment, real-life anecdotes, songs and events from the past, the Colonial Show is not only a must for all students learning about Australia History, it is a must - see performance based on the audience interactive entertainment component that just completes the learning outcomes of this unit for teachers.

The whole day event is a perfect performance and resource which gives students an opportunity to interact with characters and experience life in Sydney Town in the early Colony of New South Wales 1788 - 1809 which is no longer accessible.

Schools, children, students and teacher will have exclusive, almost never before seen access to the nation‘s fledgling beginnings as a penal colony. The educational show is based on the Learning Outcomes of the Unit – “British Colonisation in Australia”, Stage 2 in the Human Society and Its Environment (HSIE) Syllabus. This educational show can ALSO be incorporated in the (COGS.) Connected Outcomes Group Support Curriculum and also the National Curriculum of Australian History. While the show is aimed at Years 3 and 4 it is suitable for the entire primary school. The educational show allows students to participate as the colonial time span comes alive with authentic props and professional actors. The Colonial Show school incursion brings to life with utter realism the story of Australia's colonisation.

The Colonial Show school incursion begins with the students being introduced to the larrikin Irish convict James Murphy and female convict Ann Fowles and experienced the hardships of the day and the oppression and tyranny they faced at the hands of the soldiers (Redcoats), and Sergeant Kennedy engages the students in the story of the Military.

The students relive the Voyage of the First Fleet, under the command of Captain Arthur Phillip, raising of the King’s Colours and participate in a recruitment of soldiers into the New South Wales Corp nicknamed the Rum Corps.

This is where the fun begins as your students and school experience the repercussions of the theft of damper and the arrest of the convict right in front of their eyes. The question is...

  • Can your students accurately become the magistrate for the trial of James Murphy and sentence him to a flogging?

  • Can they hold their wits and tell the story of the Black Velvet Band and how the British Government introduced the practise of Cribbing which framed tradesmen for the crime of theft?

  • Can they bear to hear the serious, yet funny stories of the characters and the reason they were sent to the Colony of NSW?

There is only one way to find out ... Book your ticket to the most exciting Australian Historical Renactment ever seen.

The Colonial Show school incursion is a whole day experience right in the safety of your school grounds.
It is a perfect event to have at your school to encourage, stimulate or enhance what the students are learning and is one of the best educational resources in Australia.

The Colonial Show school incursion was born out of the closure of Old Sydney Town, situated on the Central Coast, 2003.

Crew were accomodating of the new venue and the change in weather resulting in rain and therefore no outside area to use. Thank you!

    Review the booking process and Iconic Performances.

    We absolutely loved the performance and definitely would book it or other shows again for our school.. Some more detailed prepation information would have been useful, we were not informed of how loud the performance was going to be, or that water was going to be thrown while inside. While these did not impact on the brilliance of the performance, it would have been useful to know in choosing an appropriate space in our school.

    Management Reply to Review Hi Tony, As the event supervisor I am happy to hear that the show and the quality and professionalism of the show. We always try to maintain a high standard of our shows as a large production company. Our Show prices for schools is heavily reduced to allow many schools to be able to afford the shows. I will definitely forward your suggestion to our accounts department. I would like to note that according to our records on your booking, the Tax Invoice was emailed quite a few times to your schools accounts person who informed us that they did not receive the email and this is why the Invoice was Faxed. However even after faxing the Invoice and the reminders, I see the account was not paid in full until the 4th reminder which included the admin fees. This is an unfortunate situation, however, we did try to remind your accounts team of the due date and balance multiple times and payment was not made or a request for a payment extension. I am sorry to hear that you experienced this, but I can see that we did try to help by adjusting a portion of the late fees.


    General Feedback

    Contacting Iconic Performances and being advised of what type of show we would require and booking it was excellent The show was brilliant and very informative. The students loved the interactive nature and were able to learn in a fun and engaging way. Unfortunately there was some confusion regarding payment. This was mainly centered on us needing a tax invoice but only receiving a booking invoice initially. There were a number of queries from SJA and Iconic Performances that lasted for a few weeks. In addition there was quite a number of admin fees added onto the initial price which totaled just over $200. Deposit was paid on time. We received the tax invoice for the remaining amount via fax. This was then paid. A suggestion would be to email the tax invoice instead of fax. The show you put together is a very professional and very well thought out production which captivated the audience and meant they learnt quite a-lot. I would recommend Iconic Performances to anyone, just need to ensure accounts department runs smoothly. Cheers, Tony Barnes

    Review the booking process and Iconic Performances.

    As we had such a age range in the audience some aspects of the show needed to be modified to suit the younger audience. We really needed to brief the students more on what to expect in the show as a number of younger students were scared. The volume of the show could have been lowered a little.

    One change this year, was that we did not start in class groups and therefore when we broke up into activity groups not all students were with their teacher, this created a couple of problems as pastoral teachers we not able to assist special needs. The actors were happy to re-group when we brought this up. Thank you

    Students were very engaged and felt they could participate. We had many who would not normally get up on stage participate. however, for some the noise and shouting is distressing, and we allowed them to sit at the back.

    We loved that it was entertaining and humorous and the actors stayed in character all day. We loved that staff were involved too. The only thing to be improved was the feedback through the speakers and how loud it got at times, but overall was fantastic. Teachers and students smiled all day

    The Show and Event

    They picked same kids a few times and some disappointed to not get picked. But still great interaction with them.

    Great show - loved it, only one area to improve: 1. Alot of the historical vocabulary wasnt understood by most of the students. Eg. latrine = toilet. Having a list of words that you use in the show so that teachers could explain to students before the day of the show would indeed be helpful for next time.

    The Show and Event

    Maybe during the 3 group times, asking who hasn't had a turn to participate, or preparing the teachers to tell students before the day, to take turns, and if a student has had a turn, then not to put their hand up - to share the participation - as the actors couldn't really tell who had already participated.

    We book this every 2 years. And each time the show improves. The other teachers and I thought the change using the National Curriculum really helped make this incursion even more important to our lesson plans. It related and supported the curriculum closely and it makes it very easy for our students to understand.

    The Show and Event

    I am surprised at how much fun is placed in the show with all the educational parts. it is will mixed and balanced with facts and laughs.

    The long march to Sydney Cove i thought was an interesting way to show the children what happened when the convicts were disembarked.
