Blood Brothers

Blood Brothers back for UK Tour in 2024

Hit West End musical Blood Brothers is continuing its successful UK tour in 2024.

Award-winning playwright Willy Russell’s epic musical Blood Brothers will start its next UK tour at the New Victoria Theatre in Woking on 16 January 2024 and visit locations including Malvern, Newcastle, New Brighton, Shrewsbury, Southampton, Kings Lynn, Torquay, Billingham, Bath, Leicester, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

The show will star Niki Colwell Evans as Mrs Johnstone and Sean Jones as Mickey Johnstone, with Gemma Broderick as Linda, and Joe Sleight as Eddie.

Also returning to the cast for 2024 is Timothy Lucas (Sammy), Josh Capper (Neighbour), Sarah Jane Buckley (Mrs Lyons), Tim Churchill (Mr Lyons), Jess Smith (Brenda), Graeme Kinniburgh (Postman/Bus Conductor), Chloe Pole (Donna Marie) and Alex Harland (Policeman / Teacher), with further casting to be announced.

Blood Brothers started as a play, performed at a Liverpool comprehensive school in 1981, before opening at the Liverpool Playhouse in 1983. The musical has since played around the world, including scooping four awards for Best Musical in London and seven Tony Award nominations on Broadway. The show played for more than 10,000 performances in the West End.

The story tells the moving tale of twins separated at birth, who grow up on the opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with tragic consequences.

The show is directed by Bob Tomson and the late Bill Kenwright, with Musical Direction by Matt Malone, Sound by Dan Samson, Set & Costume design by Andy Walmsley and Lighting by Nick Richings.

In November at the Royal Variety Performance, former Blood Brothers star Melanie C performed “Tell Me It’s Not True” from the musical, as a tribute to the show’s producer Bill Kenwright, who died in October. The Royal Variety performance will air on ITV on 17 December.
