Karen Blunden, an experienced Theatre-in-Education director and drama teacher, will lead a series of workshops during half term (dates below), from which an ensemble of approximately 15 characters will be cast.
“Blood Brothers is a very human story about love, friendship and hidden truths, as relevant today as when it was written 40 years ago. I want to explore and produce a theatrical experience where the audience and cast can laugh and cry together. It’s a powerful, moving and compassionate play and stands for everything I believe theatre can be.”
Following the workshops, a 12-week rehearsal period will follow every Monday and Thursday evening, culminating in 3 performances to which friends/family and members of HTC will be invited to attend.
