    I was worried that the show would not be interactive, but when the show was here it was better than we all expected. The children and staff loved the show so much that they students asked to have it again. One of our teachers was impressed with the amount of educational content and how the whole thing was written about what we were teaching.

    My assistant principal was worried about the price of the show. But when we had it, the price of the show is worth it. Our students come from a low financial area and it was hard to convince parents to pay. After the show, we had parents tell us that their child has one of the best school day and couldn't stop talking about the excursion.

    Certain parts were difficult for students to understand because of characters' accents, especially for students who use English as their second language.

    The Audience

    I enjoyed the performance very much because it was very entertaining and funny because all the students were involved in the performance and you really felt like you were there. One of the main reasons why I like it was because of the setting and props in the performance. I did enjoy the performance because as well as being informative it was entertaining and funny. We got to understand the characters personality as well. The only thing that was bad was that because they spoke in a accent sometimes I couldn’t understand what they were saying. I thought that the performance was really good. It was really entertaining and funny to watch. It also taught me a lot like I learnt that gold is twice as heavy as led and that gold can be found in specimens. The only minor thing was that it was a bit hard to understand them because of their accents. Otherwise wise the performance was amazing.

    Have experienced the show before, first time at this school. In past performances I've seen a male and female character. The post assessment I did with my students this year (two male characters) indicated the students did not have as good an understanding of the female perspective.. One male did speak about female roles, but the kids didn't absorb much of it. In addition, I'd LOVE to see the aboriginal perspective brought into the show.

    The Show and Event

    First time I've seen the show with an interactive MC, the children seemed to enjoy it.

    The Audience

    Loved the experience, got a lot out of it, they were engaged for the whole time. Difficult to understand one actors Irish accent.

    Another year for us and the show has improved even more. We have had the show for 5 years in a row and each year our students are impressed and our teachers. The new version meeting the national curriculum helps us a lot. The students of last year remembered the show and wanted to be part of it this year again. Thank you one more time.

    Well written for the students to understand and we were easily able to use the show to do further learning in class. I was astonished to see how the students remembered so many of the things that happened in the show. Would have been very hard to have achieved the same result in class using only Black Line Masters and the whiteboards.

    The Show and Event

    The children were always moving and doing something at different times. We had a very large group and the people doing the show were able to handle the large group very well.

    The Audience

    Our students are still talking about the show in term 3 when we had the show last term.

    There was good information connecting to current research tasks in class. Good historical information regarding the goldrush with specific dates and names of actual people. Excellent props for the students to see and use, Full audience participation particularly around mining techniques and living experiences on the goldfields. The use of humour was helpful to keep students engaged.

    The Show and Event

    Feedback from the studenrs was that they liked the full audience participation. They enjoyed the role playing.

    The Audience

    The audience mostly enjoyed the production. They thought it was relevant, funny and engaging. Perhaps another actor could have given the show some more depth Giving the students a hands on real life mining experience reinforce life on the goldfields.The venue was quite hot and stuffy, although it is difficult to manage the weather.

    The production crew were very friendly and professional and made the set up/down very easy.

    It was excellent. The content was highly appropriate but I feel that the comedy part could have been condensed. The set up and pack up time were extensive and I didn't think the pack up would take so long which impacted on other events not able to take place in the venue.

    Great level of interaction from the students.
