Stage Star Enjoys Blood Brothers Rehearsal

April 07, 2014 at 12:04 PM

If your first dress rehearsal isn't stressful enough, try pulling everything together in the presence of one of New Zealand's most successful music theatre stars!

The cast and crew of this year’s Senior School Musical, Blood Brothers, were both excited and nervous that stage star, Delia Hannah, was at their first full dress rehearsal. Delia has just finished the season as principal lead in the Auckland Music Theatre's production of ‘Mamma Mia’ at the Civic.

Through her connection with Head of Drama, Emma Bishop (who was Head of the Costume team and on the National Consortium Committee for ‘Mamma Mia’), she agreed to come in and meet the cast as well as watch the show. She played the lead role of Mrs Johnston (played at Saint Kentigern College by Lili Taylor) for the New Zealand/Australia Professional Tour of Blood Brothers in 2001 and her presence at the rehearsal was a real buzz for the entire cast!

Blood Brothers opens at the College this Wednesday - Tickets are on sale at or at the main reception, phone 09 577 0749.
