This year I had the pleasure of directing the De La Salle College and Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, Bentleigh’s 2018 Senior Play, April’s Fool by David Burton.

The play chronicled the real‐life tragedy of Kristjan Terauds, who died of a drug overdose in April 2009. The author of the play weaved interviews with family and friends, using their actual words, to share Kristjan’s story.

April’s Fool was performed Friday 14 September and Saturday 15 September in OLSH College Bentleigh’s brand new Performing Arts Centre. The cast handled the difficult topic with compassion and sensitivity and performed exceedingly well both nights. As director, I was certainly proud of their performances and our overall end product.

Please join me in congratulating the cast in their enormous efforts:

From De La Salle College: Oliver Barr, James Pavlou, Eli Te Moni, Charlie Ahearn, Jack Barnard, Sean Kelliher, Dylan Minack and Joel Van Echteld
From Our Lady of the Sacred Heart College Bentleigh: Lauren Caltabiano, Tiana Genovese, Nikita Dunning, Zoe Stafilis and Imogen Williams
