PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a 20-minute play based on Perth’s convict history. My class performed this for an assembly and the parents absolutely loved it (as did the children). There are 16 speaking parts and the extras are convicts.

This assembly is perfect for the Year 5 Australian History Curriculum, however, could easily be adapted for other year groups.

Overview: The Year 5 class is on an overnight camp to Fremantle Prison, Perth, WA. The tour guide meets them and gives them an overview of the history behind the building (originally called the Convict Establishment). Some ghostly convicts waken the students.

Joseph Lucas Horrocks is the first convict to tell his story. Later on, Moondyne Joe also tells of his many escape attempts. The guards and Governor Hampton keep the students entertained with tales of their failures and successes in capturing Moondyne Joe.

Finally, once the ghostly convicts have retreated and the students have settled back down for the night, the tour guide makes his final nightly rounds.
