In October, year 10 GCSE Drama students will be going to see the musical ’BLOOD BROTHERS’ at the Birmingham Hippodrome. To prepare for the trip, they have had the opportunity to work with one of the West End stars of the show – Michael Southern. Playing the character of ‘Sammy’, Michael has performed in the touring production as well as appeared in the show for ten years in London, performing with Mel C’ from the Spice Girls and Marti Pellow from Wet, Wet, Wet. This has been a great experience and has got us all very excited about the trip next year.
