Two members of the cast of the recently ended musical Blood Brothers came to run a workshop for us at JFS. They were Louise Clayton and Michael Southern who acted as Linda and Sammy respectively in the highly acclaimed musical.
We received many tips on how to act and during the few minutes we had left at the end of the session we had time for questions and answers. One of the questions asked was “How do you learn all your lines?” Many students found this helpful as learning lines is essential and very difficult to find a technique that suits you.
After the session all the students were inspired and thankful to the actors for coming in and running this workshop with us. We are thankful to the school for organising this as it was enjoyable and extremely helpful in our study of Blood Brothers and to help our acting in various scenes from it.
