Fea­tur­ing an epic re-en­act­ment of the 1804 Con­vict up­ris­ing, young and old alike will love this in­ter­ac­tive les­son in lo­cal his­tory pre­sented by the award win­ning Con­vict Foot­prints Pro­duc­tions.

Best known for their in­ter­ac­tive his­tor­i­cal in­ter­pre­ta­tions of Bella Vista Farm and the Old Great North Road, the cast and crew of Con­vict Foot­prints takes a dry page of his­tory and turns it into a belly-shak­ing, eye­pop­ping, tear-in­duc­ing les­son in lo­cal her­itage and the com­mon­al­ity of the hu­man ex­pe­ri­ence, ir­re­spec­tive of era.
