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.”
