BLOOD BROTHERS! Amanda to play ‘Mrs Johnstone’

AMANDA MUGGLETON will finish off 2011, by playing Mrs Johnstone in “Blood Brothers”. Written by Willy Russell,  the legendary Blood Brothers tells the captivating and moving tale of twins who,  separated at birth,  grow up on opposite sides of the tracks,  only to meet again with tragic consequences. The incredible score includes Bright New Day,  Marilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged hit Tell Me It’s Not True., Few musical have received as much acclaim as the multiaward winning Blood Brothers which,  having opened in 1988 to a tremendous critical and popular response continues to enjoy standing ovations at every devastating performance. No wonder Blood Brothers is now ‘the musical for all time’.

Having received cconsiderable national recognition in Education Rita and,  especially,  Shirley Valentine,  Amanda Muggleton’s affinity with Willy Russell’s character is significant. The Metcalfe Playhouse and IAJ International are delighted she returns to Perth to add Mrs Johnstone to her repertoire. She is joined by a strong local cast including Nick Maclaine, Gérard Schneider and Sarah McNeill.
