THOSE lucky enough to have visited Italy and are craving a re-
turn can satisfy their desire, at least in part, with a visit to Korum-
burra’s Federation Art Gallery.

More than 14 pieces of art were sold on the day and more red
stickers continue to be placed on paintings as the exhibition pro -
At least one of the artists will be at the gallery for the duration of

ARE we exclusively the product of our
environment or are our behaviours innate
and there's essentially nothing we can do to
change the type of people we are.
This is just one of the complex themes be-
ing explored by a talented cast of more than
40 students from Mary MacKillop College in
Leongatha, who have chosen the challenging
Willy Russell musical, Blood Brothers, as
their annual production.
And with a highly experienced produc-
tion crew behind them, led by director Bron
Kalos, musical director Elly Poletti, produc-
er Sam Wright, stage manager Richard Mu-
ranty, set construction headed up by Michael
O’Keffee and Ken Myors and design coordi-
nator Meg Steenholdt; it's shaping up to be
another great show.
Which is hardly surprising. The cast has
been in rehearsal since October last year.
"The cast was named last year and we
started in October. There's always a bit too
much going on at the start of first term to
expect to get it all ready in that time," said
"We are doing the full version of the show.
There are a lot of relevant themes including
how we are affected by our environment and
various social themes. And it's quite chal-
lenging too, with the students having to play
different age groups.
"We've got about 45 people on stage and
also a choir off-stage which is offering great
The cast and crew were heavily into re-
hearsal last week and when the 'Sentinel-
Times' visited they were belting out the
hugely emotional final number 'Tell Me It's
Not True', featuring Mrs Johnstone (Brooke
Materia) and full company.
It’ll be a big finish and have the tissues
And you can certainly hear the beneficial
influence that MD Elly Poletti is having on
their vocal output.
The rest of the cast is strong too; Isaac Mul-
doon as a hyper active Mickey, Aidan Clark
the perfect foil as his brother Edward, Holly
Knight as Linda, Lachie Verdon as Sammy
and all the rest.
It's going to be something to see... and
Tickets are already on sale through try-
booking.com/268759 for the production
which will be staged over three performanc-
es at the Wonthaggi Union Community Arts
Centre on Friday, April 21 and Saturday,
A dress rehearsal will also take place ear-
lier on Friday with the Grade 6 students of
the three catholic feeder schools given the
opportunity to attend.
Three weeks to Mary MacKillop’s Blood Brothers
There’s plenty of fun but it’s also laced with tragedy in the new musical from Mary MacK-
illop College, Blood Brothers. Lead performer in the production, Brooke Materia, is consoled
by family members as she sings the show’s big finale number Tell Me It’s Not True. m041317
Playing the parts of the brothers in Mary
MacKillop's Blood Brothers are Isaac Mul-
