Exciting News!!
ACTORS WANTED!
AUDITION – TUESDAY 1 DECEMBER 7.30PM
Subject to licensing, Woodchurch Players are entering the KDA Radio Festival with an hour long, NON MUSICAL version of
Willy Russell’s ‘Blood Brothers’
directed by Jack Davidson.
‘Twin brothers, Mickey and Edward, are separated at birth as their mother cannot afford to keep them both. Raised only streets apart in the heart of Liverpool, the boys’ lives take two very different paths. However, following a chance meeting, the pair form an unlikely friendship. But what will happen if they ever find out the secret of their shared history?’
Instead of singing, there are lyrical monologues, but music will still feature to create an atmospheric sound track.
Our award winning tech crew are ready with the kit to make it happen!
Subject to Covid guidance, we aim to start rehearsals in the New Year with recording taking place in February, ready for submission to the KDA in March. Entries will be adjudicated in April by Amanda Sharpe- Conroy.
We are inviting actors of any age from 15 upwards to audition.
Auditions will take place on Zoom and will not involve visuals – Jack wants screens off so he can listen to you! Extracts from the play will be made available via email as will the link to the Zoom meeting.
Yes, as it is set in Liverpool, a Scouse accent will be required for some roles, but there is that thing called practice and rehearsals help! That said, Jack is wanting to hear the personality and heart of a character for this lovely, emotive play and the ability to tell a story.
Characters:
Eddie and Mickey – twin brothers
The Mother (Mrs Johnston), their birth mother
Mrs Lyons – Eddie’s adoptive mother
Linda – Eddie and Mickey’s friend
Narrator
Milkman, Doctor, Policewoman
Chorus including Kids 1,2,3,4

OFFICIAL BIT - If you are successful and not currently a member of the Players you will be expected to pay membership of £6 (I know, shocking isn’t it).
Contact Jack on 07863 132920 or on [email protected] for further details.
LOOKING FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU!

Does anyone know roughly how many rehearsals a week, how long, whether will be in person or Zoom etc?

Really look forward to hearing this when it's all finished. 🙂 Had a lot of fun brushing off the liverpool accent with woodchurch before.

So excited! Can I check, is the date Thursday the 3rd Dec? Or a Tuesday? X

Great choice. 😊
