Kingsley drama students from Years 9 - 12 went to see the acclaimed touring production of Blood Brothers at the Belgrade Theatre Coventry.
It was a fantastic evening, as the production encompassed all aspects of theatre; and the stirring music and emotional storyline prompted the students to laugh and cry at the same time. The girls clearly enjoyed the production, giving the cast a standing ovation.
A great surprise was in store for the students after the show: Head of Performing Arts Mrs Walton had arranged for them to meet some members of the cast afterwards, including Craig Price (originally from Nuneaton) who played the narrator. Even though it was all a rush, as it was by now very late in the evening, Craig took time to sign programmes and talk to the girls before they caught the coach back to school.
Even better, Craig has volunteered with other members of the cast to come and run a lunchtime workshop at Kingsley before the end of term. They will talk about the show as well as the challenges of working in musical theatre.
