Here’s who’s on the current cast of hit musical Blood Brothers as it embarks on a new UK tour.

Bill Kenwright’s production will return to the stage this year with brand new tour dates.

The tour cast features Niki Colwell Evans and Sean Jones continuing to play the iconic roles of Mrs Johnstone and Mickey Johnstone respectively.

They’re joined by Timothy Lucas (Sammy), Josh Capper (Neighbour), Sarah Jane Buckley (Mrs Lyons), Tim Churchill (Mr Lyons), Jess Smith (Brenda), Graeme Kinniburgh (Postman/Bus Conductor), Chloe Pole (Donna Marie), Alex Harland (Policeman / Teacher) and Danny Knott (Perkins).

When Mrs Johnstone, a young mother, is deserted by her husband and left to her own devices to provide for seven hungry children she takes a job as a housekeeper in order to make ends meet.

It is not long before her brittle world crashes around her when she discovers herself to be pregnant yet again – this time with twins! In a moment of weakness and desperation, she enters a secret pact with her employer which leads inexorably to the show’s shattering climax.

The musical is written by Willy Russell with the tour co-directed by Bob Tomson & Bill Kenwright with musical direction by Matt Malone, sound design by Dan Samson, set and costume design by Andy Walmsley, lighting design by Nick Richings and associate lighting designer Darran Curtis.
