Blood Brothers: Schools Booking

BOOK TICKETS FOR YOUR STUDENTS NOW SCHOOL PERFORMANCES 26 November 2015, 10.30am 27 November 2015, 10.30am Twin brothers separated at birth. One prospers, the other falls on hard times. They grow up to be friends then bitter enemies – living under the prophecy that the day they find out about their true relationship will be the last day of their lives. Funny, captivating and heartbreakingly sad, the Olivier-Award winning Blood Brothers is one of theatre history’s longest running musicals. Hailed by UK’s Sunday Times as one of the best pieces of musical theatre ever written, it has been met with standing ovations time after time.  Blood Brothers explores classic themes of fate and destiny, nature versus nurture, class, childhood and adolescence, superstition, humour and tragedy. Written by Willy Russell, one of the world's leading contemporary playwrights, this emotional and gripping musical will undoubtedly capture the imagination of your students. This production is suitable for ages 11 and above. Schools booking is now open. Tickets for the public will be available at all URBTIX outlets from October 2015 onwards.

Sheraton Hong Kong Presents: “Dare to Dream” Youth Portrait Exhibition

"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined." Henry David Thoreau This summer, professional YAF artists partner with staff volunteers from Sheraton Hong Kong Hotel & Towers to lead underprivileged youngsters from The Hub Hong Kong Children and Youth Centre on an extraordinary journey to express their hopes and dreams through art.   Professional dancer Kayuen Kwok will first lead a drama workshop to motivate the youngsters to look at their dreams through role play and improvisation. The young participants will then work with professional illustrator Kiki to create illustrative icons, symbols and drawings that depict their dreams, and with a YAF photographer to capture a self-portrait. The resulting photographs and illustrations will be combined to create a beautiful series of images that asks all of us to “Dare to Dream”!   Over the past 16 years, Sheraton Hong Kong Hotel & Towers has generously supported YAF’s art programmes, with staff volunteers giving their time and lending a hand to help a wide range of teenage participants experience the fun of creating art.

Drama is a powerful teaching tool. It can be used to promote cooperation and empathy, develop decision-making skills, facilitate the exchange of knowledge, build self-confidence and self-esteem, and encourage creativity and imagination. This teachers workshop will use Blood Brothers as a stimulus to inspire teachers to apply drama techniques in class. The workshop will look into the social background of the story, the characters and relationships within the text, and explore some of the key themes, including friendship, identity, social hierarchies and superstition.
