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.
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
As it was advertised as the Valley of the Ancient Worlds, we thought we were going to see a production that supported the Yr 7 History curriculum: Ancient Societies. Instead, the show focussed on the Middle Ages but that was not clear in the description of the show in the advertising material. We only realized this when we were sent the program guide and notes the number of pictures of people in medieval clothing and the requirements in term of providing students as characters. Many of the events covered in the show are not in the Year 8 Australian Curriculum.The Show and Event
The large period of time covered was hard for the students to comprehend. At one point a list of kings was provided that would have baffled the students. It jumped around timewise too much and the events weren't placed in context at the time. Even a Year 8 group would have struggled as much of the content is not taught in the Australian Curriculum. Actors encouraged participation but then spoke while students still talking. Hard to hear the actors and the constant music didn't help.The Audience
Kids were bored and started to get on their phones. Very loud. The explosion at the start should have been better articulated in your package and how much noise there would be so that we could have made alternative arrangements for students on the autism spectrum who were extremely unsettled by the noise.Review the booking process and Iconic Performances.

There was a lot of audience participation. Our students were very hard to handle and because of time issues at the school our students misbehaved. The actors were remained professional through the show. I my other staff were embarrassed but this is was not the fault of the show. They did a wonderful job to maintain the interest of the students.The Audience
The entire thing was so smooth and offered a huge amount of literature and learning possibilties. This beat any possible museum or Video the student would watched. It was age appropriate and designed so well all our students thoroughly gained more informaiton than me or my peers would have anticipated.The Show and Event

They were amazing. I enjoyed the scene with Joan of Arc. I didn't know Ring a Ring a Roses was written about the black death. That was so cool. The ancient pit we climbed through was wow.Review the booking process and Iconic Performances.
We will book again next year and for our whole school.
The children felt like they were "in the moment" when stories were told. They thoroughly enjoyed volunteering for the various acting parts. It was a fun, humorous performance and the costumes and props were superb. Thank-you for giving the grade 5's such a memorable show..
