Evanston, IL: In BRIGADOON, as a heavenly mist caresses the highlands of Scotland, two young Americans embark on an adventure they'll never forget. The village of Brigadoon comes to life just one day every 100 years, but that's all it takes for Tommy to fall in love with the fair lassie Fiona.

The score, by the creators of MY FAIR LADY, includes the Broadway classics "Almost Like Being in Love," "The Heather on the Hill" and "Waitin' for My Dearie."

BRIGADOON is directed and choreographed by Light Opera Works artistic director, Rudy Hogenmiller and conducted by Light Opera Works music director Roger L. Bingaman.

Casting for BRIGADOON includes Robert Hunt (Tommy Albright), Jennie Sophia (Fiona MacLaren), Clay Sanderson (Jeff Douglas), and Maggie Portman (Meg Brockie).

The design/production team for BRIGADOON includes Nick Mozak (Scenic), Ricky Lurie (Costume), Sienna Macedon (Hair and Make-Up), Charles Jolls (Lighting), Miles Polaski (Sound), Julia Eberhardt (Properties), Katie Beeks (Stage Manager) and Paige Keedy (Production Manager).

The Opening Reception for BRIGADOON is sponsored by Whole Foods Market Evanston.
