Blood Brothers
Bill Kenwright’s legendary multi-award winning production of the international smash hit musical, Blood Brothers, heads to Weston-super-Mare in 2024.

The much loved musical, known for sell out houses across the country, returns to The Playhouse this September. Niki Colwell Evans and Sean Jones will play the iconic roles of Mrs Johnstone and Mickey Johnstone respectively, with Gemma Brodrick reprising her role of Linda, and Joe Sleight as Eddie.

Also returning to the 2024 production are Timothy Lucas (Sammy), Josh Capper (Neighbour), Sarah Jane Buckley (Mrs Lyons), Tim Churchill (Mr Lyons), Jess Smith (Brenda), Graeme Kinniburgh (Postman/Bus Conductor), and previous cast members Chloe Pole (Donna Marie) and Alex Harland (Policeman/Teacher) with further casting to be announced. Award-winning playwright Willy Russell’s epic tale of Liverpool life started as a play, performed at a Liverpool comprehensive school in 1981, before opening at the Liverpool Playhouse in 1983. The musical has since triumphed across the globe, completing sell out seasons in the US, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Japan.

Few musicals have been received with such acclaim as the mulit-award winning Blood Brothers, scooping up four awards for Best Musical in London and and seven Tony Award nominations on Broadway, it is considered ‘One of the best musicals ever written’ (Sunday Times).

Bill Kenwright’s production surpassed 10,000 performances in London’s West End, one of only three musicals ever to achieve that milestone. Blood Brothers tells the captivating and moving tale of twins seperated at birth, who grow up on the opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with tragic consequences. The superb score includes Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged hit Tell Me It’s Not True.

Theatre General Manager, Mark Thompson says: ‘Following 2023’s record breaking pantomime, The Playhouse is delighted to once again be bringing the best of the West End to Weston. Our first West End Musical transfer since the pandemic could only be the one choice... Blood Brothers. If you managed to get tickets the last time the show was with us, you’ll remember the Playhouse’s intimacy made the perfect environment for one of the world’s most loved productions.

Tickets are sure to be in demand so act quickly to avoid diappointment.’ Tickets for Blood Brothers go on sale from 10am on Friday 8 March via The Playhouse website and theatre Box Office.
