One of the most successful musicals of recent times is making an eagerly-awaited return to The Playhouse, and bringing it back was an ‘opportunity which could not be missed’, according to the venue’s general manager.

Blood Brothers will return to the High Street venue for one week only next year.

The show follows the story of two friends, who are in fact brothers, and the struggles they go through in life, before they find out the truth.

With iconic songs such as Tell Me It’s Not True and Marilyn Monroe, this production will fill you with joy and bring a tear to your eye.

General manager Mark Thompson said: “We are delighted to have Blood Brothers returning to Weston.

“The opportunity to bring it back was one we couldn’t miss.”

Blood Brothers will be at The Playhouse from February 6-10 next year, with performances at 7.30pm each night and 2.30pm on February 7, 8 and 10.

Tickets, priced £30-35.50, are available on 01934 645544 or via www,
