Set in the 1940's, two American hunters get lost in the scottish highlands only to find themselves in a magical village from the 1800s! Inevitably, one of the Americans, Tommy, falls for a young scottish lass, Fiona. As he battles with himself over the decision of whether to give up his life back home in order to be with her, the tiny village has troubles of its own. A disgruntled suitor of Fiona's sister Jean seeks to break Brigadoon's spell of protection that would banish the village forever. Tommy and Jeff help to save the town, but Tommy can't bring himself to stay. Once he returns to New York, however, he realizes that he "canna" live without Fiona and a miracle helps them to reunite. A beautiful (if somewhat sappy) story with beautiful music.

Audition Suggestions for Brigadoon

Brigadoon has some beautiful chorus harmonies. While it is difficult to show your ability to harmonize in a solo audition, choose a song that shows off your full musical ability.

A dance background in ballet and/or highland is strongly recommended for this show.

With the exception of Tommy, Jeff, and Jane, all of the characters in Brigadoon must speak with a Scottish accent. If you are auditioning for this show, it is strongly recommended that you read the script to familiarize yourself with the difficult language.

Tommy Albright (Legit High Baritone, 25-35)
A dreamer caught in a practical man's body. He seems to have everything, but still isn't happy.
Fiona Cambell (Legit High Soprano, 25-35)
Jean's older sister. Practical, reliable, but also a dreamer. Has high expectations for love.
Jeff Douglas (Non-Singing, 30-45, comic role)
