THE Music Theatre Guild of Victoria awards
recognise the best of the best in the state’s non-
professional theatre productions, and South
Gippsland’s own Mary MacKillop College’s Blood
Brothers has eight nominations.
It’s an extraordinary achievement for the staff
and students given Mary MacKillop College is up
against other schools with huge budgets to pay for
external professionals to produce the shows, con-
struct the sets, etc.
Blood Brothers cast members will be heading
to Bendigo for the awards presentation on Satur-
day, December 9 where they will perform the final
number from the show.
And Mary MacKillop College’s award nomina-
tions for Blood Brothers are:
• Junior Production of the Year.
• Direction of a Junior Production: Bron Kalos.
• Musical Direction of a Junior Production: Elly
• Junior Male in a Leading Role: Isaac Muldoon
(Mickey), Aidan Clark (Edward).
• Junior Female in a Leading Role: Brooke Ma-
teria (Mrs Johnstone).
• Junior Male in a Supporting Role: Jacob
v Junior Female in a Supporting Role: Holly
It will be a huge night for Bron Kalas who is also
in line for several awards in the open category for
her role as Velma in Wonthaggi Theatrical Group’s
production of Chicago.
Bron is nominated for the best Female Perform-
er in a Leading Role (Doreen Burrows Award);
best First Performance in a Featured Role (Gladys
Moncrieff Award); and the Dancer’s Award (Tony
McShanagh Award) along with Chicago co-stars
Will Hanley who played Billy Flynn and Rose Wray-
Rose was also nominated for her direction in
Choreography (Marie Cumisky Award), while Will
Hanley and Jay Nelson as Amos Hart are nomi-
nated for the best Male Performer in a Supporting
Role (Rob Constable Award).
In the Design Award category (Peter Blizzard-
Allen Award), Colin Mitchell and Nick Jeremiah
were nominated for Projection Design and Images
for Leongatha Lyric Theatre’s Hairspray, while Ja-
net Legg is nominated for Hair Design for Chicago.
The omission of Wonthaggi Theatrical Group’s
ultra-successful Miss Saigon from any award
nominations would baffle all who saw it.
