All Souls’ Amateur Operatic Society’s next show will be a ‘first’. ‘Brigadoon’ is a rarely-performed show and All Souls’ AOS have never tackled the fantasy musical before. Publicity officer Tony Sutcliffe said: “The musical is beautiful - most people will know ‘Almost like being in Love’. We have a new and eager producer, Graham Weston, and are working with a real piper - it will be a show not to miss.”
‘Brigadoon’, which will be presented at Halifax Playhouse from Tuesday, April 21 to Saturday, April 25, has music by Frederick Loewe and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner.
It tells the story of two Americans, Tommy Albright and Jeff Douglas, who are on a hunting holiday in Scotland when they discover a beautiful and quaint old village called Brigadoon. Strangely the village does not feature on any map and soon Tommy finds out why: Brigadoon is an enchanted place.
It appears for one day once every 100 years - and then disappears back into the mists of time to ‘sleep’ for another century.
When Tommy falls in love with village girl Fiona, he realises he can never be part of her life if he returns to America - but can he stay in Brigadoon?
The cast includes Peter Skelton and Brian Harrison as Jeff Douglas and Tommy Albright with Amy Ellison as Fiona MacKeith, Maggie Horsfield as Jean MacKeith, Christine Roberts as Meg Brockie and Jai Jai Ekins as Charlie Cameron.
