S3 (Year 9) drama visited Sheffield’s Lyceum Theatre recently to watch Willy Russell’s Blood Brothers. Blood Brothers is a musical and is a contemporary nature versus nurture plot. It revolves around fraternal twins Mickey and Eddie, who were separated at birth, one subsequently being raised in a wealthy family, the other in a poor family.

A firm favourite at Birkdale, the S3 groups have been studying extracts of the script in lessons and developing their acting skills. In particular they have been learning how to play 7 year old boys and 35 year old men!
