Following January’s fantastic performances for ‘A Night on the West End’, Blood Brothers is about to hit Stockport this month!
This February, NK Theatre Arts are about to bring to life one of the best known drama’s of our time when they present the play version of the Willy Russell smash BLOOD BROTHERS.
Two evening performances are set for Thursday 16th and Friday 17th February at 7.30pm.
The story is a contemporary nature verses nurture plot, revolving around fraternal twins Mickey and Eddie, who were separated at birth: one raised in a wealthy family while the other raised in a poor family. The twins’ different backgrounds take them to opposite ends of the social spectrum, one becoming a respectable councillor and the other unemployed and in prison.
They both fall in love with the same girl, causing a tear in their friendship.
Russell says that his work was based on a one-act play that he read as a child “about two babies switched at birth … it became the seed for Blood Brothers!
NK Theatre’s youngsters then take to the stage for two performances as our Saturday Dance and our Musical Theatre Classes take part in the STUDIO 2 SHOWCASE which will feature various music and dance which have been worked on during the weekly workshop classes. After a sell out last year, there will be a 7.30pm performance on Friday 10th March and a 2pm show during Saturday 11th March, with tickets now on sale.
MADE IN DAGENHAM
At the end of the month, we bring Dagenham to Stockport as MADE IN DAGENHAM becomes NK’s first major musical of 2017.
Inspired by a true story and based on the hit movie, Made in Dagenham is the uplifting new West End musical comedy about friendship, love and the importance of fighting for what is right. Essex 1968. Like millions of other working women, each morning Rita O’Grady is just trying to get her husband out of bed, get the kids off to school and get to work at the factory on time. But life is about to change forever when it’s announced that the girls in the stitching room of Ford’s Dagenham car plant will have their pay grade dropped to ‘unskilled’. Quickly drawing on a strength she never knew she had, Rita leads her friends in a battle against the might of Ford and the corruption of the Union supposed to protect them.
As the girls’ inspiring journey gets bigger than anyone could have imagined, the pressure is too much for some, but can Rita keep up the fight and the happy home she’s worked so hard for? Funny, touching and timeless, Made in Dagenham shows how ordinary people can do extraordinary things when they stand together.
