GCSE English Literature group take in Blood Brothers to enhance academic studies

English Literature pupils at Rydal Penrhos got the opportunity to take in a critically acclaimed show to enhance their learning.

The Year 11 and 10 GCSE group travelled to the Rhyl Pavilion on Wednesday, March 21, where the witnessed the outstanding Blood Brothers Musical, which has a superb score featuring Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged hit Tell Me It’s Not True.

Written by Willy Russell, the legendary Blood Brothers tells the captivating and moving tale of twins who, separated at birth, grow up on opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with fateful consequences.

Starring in the musical as Mickey is Sean Jones, who is no stranger to Rydal Penrhos having led a special workshop at the school last year.

This is the latest in a series of educational trips put on by the English and Drama department throughout the academic year, which gives each pupil the chance to learn more about industry leaders outside of the classroom.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “We are fortunate to have a fantastic English department here at Rydal Penrhos, who provide an exceptional education for every pupil thanks to the hard work of Leah Crimes and her team.

“Trips like this are a great way for them to get a better perspective of what they are learning in the classroom, and hopefully they can take something from Blood Brothers into their lessons.”
