Bill Kenwright's production of Blood Brothers returns to The Lowry, Salford October 18–22 as part of its national tour.
Returning to the cast is former X-Factor finalist Niki Colwell Evans as Mrs Johnstone alongside Sean Jones, completing his final tour in the role of Mickey.
Joining the cast for the autumn tour are Jay Worley (Eddie), Richard Munday (Narrator) and Timothy Lucas (Sammy). They will join previous cast members Paula Tappenden (Mrs Lyons), Tim Churchill (Mr Lyons), Carly Burns (Linda), Nick Wilkes (Policeman / Teacher), Josh Capper (Neighbour), Grace Galloway (Donna Marie / Miss Jones), Melissa Potts (Brenda), Andy Owens (Perkins) and Jacob Yolland (Bus Conductor).
The tale of Liverpool life started as a play, performed at a Liverpool comprehensive school in 1981, before opening Liverpool Playhouse in 1983.
The score includes "A Bright New Day", "Marilyn Monroe" and the hit "Tell Me It's Not True".
Blood Brothers tells of twins separated at birth, who grow up on the opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with tragic consequences.
