‘BRIGADOON’ AT THE STATE THE­ATRE

Where Melbourne - - Where Now Live On Stage -

The Pro­duc­tion Com­pany is stag­ing the ro­man­tic classic, “Brigadoon”, from 28 Oc­to­ber at Arts Centre Mel­bourne’s State The­atre. The show fea­tures a cast of 28, a band of 21 and a piper play­ing the Scot­tish bag­pipes. From Lerner and Loewe (“My Fair Lady” and “Camelot”), “Brigadoon” is the story of New York­ers Tommy Al­bright and Jeff Dou­glas who get lost on their vacation to the Scot­tish High­lands, and stum­ble upon Brigadoon, a myth­i­cal vil­lage that ap­pears for one day ev­ery hun­dred years. Tommy, who has a fi­ancé in New York, soon falls in love with Fiona, a young wo­man from Brigadoon. As Tommy learns, to fall in love means stay­ing for­ever. Ro­han Browne stars as Tommy, so­prano Genevieve Kings­ford plays Fiona while Nan­cye Hayes is the ma­tri­arch Mrs Forsythe. The pro­duc­tion also fea­tures Elise Mc­cann as Meg, who looks for love in all the wrong places. Luke Joslin is Jeff, Tommy’s fun but cyn­i­cal best friend who doesn’t be­lieve in love.

From 28 Oc­to­ber, Arts Centre Mel­bourne, 100 St Kilda Road, Mel­bourne. 1300 182 183. the­p­ro­duc­tion­com­pany.com.au
