  • snapd oakville BLOOD BROTHERS

    The provocative and heartbreaking musical by Willy Russell was mounted at the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts. This West End Studio production was a community success getting gasps and laughter from the packed audience. This show was described by the choreographers as "animated musical theatre". Blood Brothers tells the unforgettable story of the Johnstone twins. Separated at birth when their mother could not afford to raise them, both Mickey and Edward grew up streets apart becoming best friends but never knowing the truth. After childhood, divergent paths lead one brother to riches and the other to rags with lives that intersect over the love of the same woman. This was a fantastic musical that kept the audience engaged right to the very end! To view and/or download all photos from this event, please visit www.oakville.snapd.com
