‘BRIGADOON’ AT THE STATE THEATRE
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
