For the last 18 months a team of esteemed local creatives have been collaborating on something truly ground breaking; an original musical exploring what it is to belong in a town where so much has shifted. Titled New Blood, this daring contemporary musical theatre piece created by Melia Naughton, Joel Cooper, and Anouska Gammon is deeply moving, funny, bold, and affecting. It will star the three creators, along with local talent Mikey Bryant and Elodie Crowe. The premiere season of New Blood is set to hit the stage in Newrybar this month, and has created a buzz in the region.
The entire season sold out in a week, and has just been extended with an additional two shows on Monday 24 and Tuesday 25 October. New Blood is on its way to fringe festivals around the country in 2023, and is an exciting celebration of the talent and creativity that exist in our region.
New Blood, Newrybar Community Hall, October 20–25.
