Involving a massive selection of students from the Audience, we take them through the hard yakka out in Outback of NSW.

    There was lot of child involvement. Our students do have behavioural problems and to keep them occupied for the entire show was very nice. I take my hat off for the cast and crew who did a wonderful job to engage them.

    Educational Value

    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.

    Review the booking process and Iconic Performances.

    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.

    The Show and Event

    Great level of interaction from the students.

    The pacing felt a little slow at times and two hours is a long time. Around the 1hr 30min mark, students began to get restless. There was a lot of content covered in the 2 hours. the actors were good, upbeat and handled the students well if they were chatting or otherwise needed their attention reigned in. Sometime difficult to hear, but that's probably because the hall is large. The song at the end was a highlight, kids loved that in particular.

    The Show and Event

    Actors did a good job of stopping and redirecting when there were some chatty kids. Quick stop, told them to hush in character, then continued. Kids had fun with the roles they were able to play and the group song.
