Spreckels Theatre Company Opens BRIGADOON Tonight
A mystical Scottish village, which only appears one day every hundred years, is discovered by two American tourists in this rarely performed Broadway musical. With its rousing dance numbers and soaring, spine-tingling score with memorable songs including "Once in the Highlands," "Come to Me, Bend to Me," "I'll Go Home With Bonnie Jean," and "Almost Like Being in Love," plus magical special effects, "Brigadoon" is a
rare, enchanting and memorable theatrical experience for all ages.
This is the strange thing that happened to two weary hunters that lost their way....While on vacation in the Scottish Highlands, Tommy Albright, along with his cynical friend Jeff Douglas, discover the hamlet and townsfolk of "Brigadoon." They encounter mystery, adventure and love before returning to their conventional life in New York City. After months of torment Tommy heads back to the Scottish Highlands, with the hope love will let him return to the mystical Brigadoon.
This Spreckels Theatre Company production features the new Paradyne projection system, developed by Spreckels Performing Arts Center, combining still images and animations to create multiple backdrop effects.
