This week Year 11 & 12 Drama students sat in to watch a special performance from visiting company, Grin & Tonic Theatre Troupe. The show, ‘April’s Fool’, was a form of verbatim theatre, where real-life accounts of events are acted out as they were said. The troupe’s actors made time for a Q&A at the end of the show, where students asked about process and production details.
What made this visit particularly significant is that Grin & Tonic actor, Lachlan Dodd, is a former Mueller student and staff member. It has been wonderful to see Lachlan progress from school productions and community theatre, to now working as a professional actor, able to invest back into Drama students at Mueller.
