Blood Brothers

“So did y’ear the story of the Johnstone twins?”

One of the most beloved musicals of all time is coming to Napier.

Deserted by her husband, Mrs Johnstone already has five children and is expecting twins. She cleans house for childless Mrs Lyons who offers unofficially to adopt one of the babies. Mrs Johnstone reluctantly agrees; she knows that the child will be well brought up in a prosperous household. But, there is a prophesy that twins parted at birth will die when they discover the truth, and both mothers do their best to keep the twins, Mickey Johnstone and Edward Lyons, well separated.

Blood Brothers is a show that transcends generations, and is not to be missed.

Tickets available now online at iTicket or at the Tabard Theatre Costume Hire!
