On Wednesday 11th March, we welcomed Mike Southern, from Stage-Ed, to school. Mike ran a practical workshop on Blood Brothers for our GCSE drama students.

Blood Brothers by Willy Russell is the GCSE drama set text. Mike plays the part of Sammy in Blood Brothers and it was wonderful to have his energy and expertise in our school. The workshop was incredibly interactive and the students really enjoyed their time with Mike learning about Blood Brothers and developing acting techniques.

The students gave some fabulous feedback including:

‘The workshop was fun and educational, I felt I could be myself and everyone joined in which made it a challenge for me to join in throughout. It helped me to get a better understanding of Blood Brothers the class systems the play acknowledges and themes of the play.’

‘I loved the wild interactions and the physical element, acting with Mike and I also loved looking at Blood Brothers again.’
