Convict Escapades

An immersive theatre experience

The year is 1836. Come and be mustered at the principal convict barracks in the colony, and join your fellow convicts for an immersive theatre experience like no other.

Get ready to choose your own adventure, working your way through the convict system to earn your prized ‘ticket of leave’. You’ll come face to face with some of the notorious and colourful characters that lurk around every corner. Take orders from the nasty superintendent, meet the lovesick cook, be tricked by the convict ‘magpie’ in his clown like suit, and avoid being punished by the shifty scourger.

With stories to hear, a court trial to attend, tattooing, and fun jobs to do, you’ll have to keep your wits about you to earn your freedom in time. Surprises await you throughout the buildings and courtyard – be prepared for a fantastically fun convict caper!

Ages 6 to 12 years.
