The Newtown Theatre may be closed for movies, but starting Thursday, the Newtown Arts Company will perform “Brigadoon” live on stage at the historic theater.
Performances of the classic musical will be held through Dec. 10. The production takes audiences back in time to tell the story two American tourists hiking the Scottish Highlands. There they find a town, which appears only once every 100 years.
“Brigadoon” song classics include: “I’ll Go Home with Bonnie Jean,” “Almost Like Being in Love” “The Heather on the Hill” and “My Mother’s Weddin’ Day.”
The play stars Joe Cutalo as Tommy Albright and Wren Workman as Jeff Douglas.
“Their chance encounter with the townspeople of Brigadoon sets off a chain of romantic and tragic events highlighting a clash of cultures and times. Tommy falls in love with Scottish lass Fiona MacLaren, played by Carly Price of Holland and Kristin Kauffman of Yardley. Jeff is romanced by dairymaid Meg Brockie played by Amelia Arrigo of Newtown,” according to information from the Newtown Arts Company.
Additional performances of “Brigadoon” are on Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m.; Sunday at 3 p.m.; amd Tuesday and Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.
