Blood Brothers Auditions
Blood Brothers, was created by playwright Willy Russell. The story revolves around twin boys (Mickey and Edward) who are separated at birth and brought up in completely different environments in the city. The play, set in the 1960s, is divided into two acts.
Mickey is brought up with his seven older siblings by his struggling single mother, Mrs Johnstone. His twin brother, Edward, however is brought up as the only child of the wealthy Lyons family, who live nearby, after Mrs Lyons persuaded Mrs Johnstone to hand over one of her twins at birth. Mickey and Edward don’t meet each other until they’re seven years old, but immediately become best friends and blood brothers. The bond continues when the boys are teenagers and both live in the countryside, despite them both being in love with Mickey’s neighbour Linda. However, as they get older, the huge difference in their backgrounds pulls them apart and eventually leads to their tragic deaths.
To audition for this production, please contact our team to book your place in the auditions and schedule a solo audition (if you want a main role). Everyone who wishes to be involved, must attend on the audition day to complete a group workshop. Those wishing to audition for main roles must book and complete a 4-minute audition slot using the relevant audition pack below (click on the character you wish to audition for - this will open up in a separate window). If you wish to just simply be involved in the production and not necessarily have a main role, then you will not need to complete a solo audition and can simply attend the group workshop.
While there are only five character extracts, each show a different character type, and from these, we'll be able to cast you into a role that we think suits your acting style best.
BOOK AN AUDITION SLOT
