DescriptionThe Commandants Dinner and Show is a night of great entertainment, delectable food and loads of fun. Make it a “must” for your itinerary!!
This factual yet fun dinner theater is Norfolk Island’s newest interactive show and a great way to learn about Norfolk’s history. The cast of actors will take you on an entertaining journey back in time. The Commandant’s stories about the notorious Convict Settlements on Norfolk Island will have you enthralled. During the evening, hear how the convicts were treated by sadists and reformers alike.
Listen to a chilling recall of one of the infamous rebellions. Then marvel at how the Commandants and their families adapted to life in a Norfolk Island penal colony, recreating a little piece of England in the Pacific. Explore their great challenges, impressive successes and shameful secrets.
It’s a three course dinner using local produce (when available) in keeping with traditional English fare to compliment the theatrical setting. Hearty, wholesome, British tucker fit for a Commandant and his good lady wife – fortunately prepared by free men in a modern kitchen not a poor convict over a wood stove!
The Commandants Dinner and Show begins 6:30pm on Wednesdays at Paradise Hotel. Cash bar available.
