Brigadoon is the story of two young American tourists lost in the Highlands of Scotland, who stumble upon a mysterious village called Brigadoon. Tommy (Rohan Browne), one of the tourists, meets and falls in love with Fiona (Genevieve Kingsford), a feisty young woman. But Tommy discovers that magically, Brigadoon only appears for one day every one hundred years.

Lerner and Loewe, who created Gigi, My Fair Lady and Camelot, created some of their best loved standards for Brigadoon – Almost Like Being In Love, I’ll Go Home With Bonnie Jean and The Heather on The Hill.

Genevieve Kingsford, making her debut with The Production Company is in the role of Fiona, and Rohan Browne plays Tommy, the role made famous by Gene Kelly. Nancye Hayes stars as Brigadoon’s much loved matriarch, Mrs Forsythe. Helpmann Award winner Elise McCann (Miss Honey in Matilda) plays Meg Broke.

Director Jason Langley and Musical Director Michael Tyack, who created Dusty last season, return for Brigadoon.
