Spotlight Acting School presents Brigadoon at the Spotlight Playhouse in Berea November 9-11. This brilliant musical features 19 Spotlight Acting School students, ages 11-14. Tickets are $6 for students, $8 for seniors and $10 for adults, with ticket proceeds benefiting the school’s scholarships and mission to turn no child away due to financial need.
“Brigadoon is a timeless, magical story and we’re excited to bring it to Berea,” said Chad Hembree, Executive Director of Spotlight Performing Arts, Inc. “Our acting students have poured themselves into this beloved show, designed to showcase their musical talent and acting chops.”
The mystery and beauty of the Scottish Highlands is the backdrop for a magical tale about following your heart and the power of love. Lerner and Loewe’s Brigadoon is the enchanting and beloved Broadway and West End musical that inspired the classic MGM film, and numerous productions all over the world. New Yorker Tommy Albright unexpectedly arrives at the mysterious Scottish Highland village of Brigadoon, which only appears for one day every 100 years. When Tommy meets and falls in love with Fiona, a beautiful villager in this magical hamlet, he must decide whether to return to his old life or stay in Brigadoon — forever. Featuring such standards as “Almost Like Being in Love,” “Come to Me, Bend To Me,” and “Heather on the Hill,” Brigadoon is a timeless, romantic classic that vividly brings the mystery and magic of the Scottish Highlands to life.
