Natasha Hamilton to take Blood Brother role
Natasha Hamilton is to take on a role in the West End production of Blood Brothers.
The former Atomic Kitten singer is to perform in the role of Mrs Johnstone, in her debut performance on the West End stage.
Hamilton will take to the Phoenix Theatre stage in the role from January 24th 2011 to 30th July.
The show currently features Lyn Paul playing the part until November 20th, when it will be taken on by Maureen Nolan until January 22nd 2011.
Telling the story of twin brothers separated at birth, it explores their later friendship across class divides, with tragic consequences.

She wowed the critics with her performance and picked up an Olivier award nomination for best actress in a musical, although she missed out to Samantha Spiro for Hello Dolly.
