The Haywood Arts Regional Theater (HART) will present their production of the music of “Brigadoon,” a story that has been featured on Broadway, in film, and on television and received positive reviews with praise for its originality and integration of song and story, at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday, Oct. 27.
Showtime is set for 4 p.m. and tickets are $15 each.
The story of “Brigadoon” was inspired by Rodgers and Hammerstein’s successful collaborations “Oklahoma!” and “Carousel.” It was written by Alan Jay Lerner and set to music by Frederick Loewe.
“Brigadoon” is a love story that unfolds in a magical village in the Scottish highlands that is discovered by two weary travelers. It explores the warmth and simplicity of the countryside of Brigadoon and incorporates traditional Scottish folk songs such as, “Waitin’ for My Dearie,” “Almost Like Being in Love,” and “There But for You Go I.”
HART offers this performance of Brigadoon’s music, under the direction of Steve Lloyd, with a full cast, chorus, and orchestra that brings this intoxicating story to life. Dr. Bradley Martin conducts an orchestra that sets the perfect background for the lively, traditional score, and Cord Scott choreographs the actors in a way that invites the audiences to join in their journey to Brigadoon. This production is described as whimsical, entertaining, and captivating as this group of talented actors and musicians open up a whole new world to both its audience and cast. It’s a family-friendly production and a great experience for all ages.
After several sold-out shows, the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts is very pleased to welcome the extraordinary talents of Haywood Arts Regional Theatre to its stage.
