Tracy Notes About This Show

This is a magical journey with a lilting score filled with popular melodies that will have persons of a certain age happily humming along. Children will enjoy the pageantry and action and perhaps even the love story. There is a chase scene, a Sword Dance, a wedding and a funeral! The score cries out for bagpipes. We have constructed correctly built kilts of non-clan wool plaid fabric in groups that represent the different clans, with all the accouterments - sporran, tall socks with flashes, glengarry or tam shanter, plaidee. There's no other way to get the right movement int a kilt than to incorporate the requisite 8 - 12 yards of fabric in each one as we have. We also offer lovely, danceable dresses with matching plaidees for the ladies - our Showplot gives the specifics. We offer many SHOW SPECIFIC PROPS for this show, including the SWORD PAIRS, MERCHANDISE POLES for the marketplace, The BIBLE and DECLARATION; see our Showplot for all the details. There are wonderful backdrops available for Brigadoon from: http://cheneydesigns.com/drops/DropRental_1.html

Plot Synopsis

Tommy and Jeff, two Americans, walking on a Scottish heath, come upon the ancient village of Brigadoon. Tommy falls under the charm of Fiona, who has Mr Lundie reveal to him the "miracle" that the inhabitants awaken only one day every hundred years. This spell has kept them all in harmony, but will be broken for all the villagers if one of them ever leaves. This almost happens when lovesick Harry Beaton tries to escape but comes to an accidental death instead. Tommy reluctantly agrees to return to NY with Jeff; then persuades Jeff to return to Scotland to convince them it was only a dream. When they get there, Tommy's love is so strong that the village is briefly revealed and Jeff watches Tommy enter Brigadoon to stay with Fiona, his true love, forever.
