The Story

The village of Brigadoon vanished into the Highland mists two hundred years ago. By chance, Tommy Albright and Jeff Douglas, American Tourists, happen upon it on the one day each century that this village reappears.

Fiona McKeith and Meg Brockie show these two travellers typical Scottish hospitality. They are even invited to the wedding of Fiona's sister Jean and Charlie Cameron. The groom however, has a rival in Harry Ritchie who has long been in love with Jean despite the fond attentions of his devoted admirer Maggie Abernethy.

Tormented by jealousy, Harry disrupts the celebrations and more seriously, threatens the existence of Brigadoon by attempting to leave the village, thereby breaking the spell forever.

Not surprisingly, Tommy and Jeff are puzzled and deeply affected by this village and its inhabitants. But it all ends happily - "for if ye love someone deeply, anythin' is possible - even miracles".

Show Review, taken from NODA Scotland News

"This was certainly one of the best productions I have seen at Markinch. It was imaginatively staged and flowed well. As always, Harry Fairbairn's set designs were a joy to look at. The young orchestra played exceptionally well, providing a fine backing to the talented company.

I could easily mention all the principals but in particular, Glen McGill made a convincing Tommy, singing and acting extremely well. Ian McDonald made the most of comic opportunities as Jeff. Karen Skene was a lovely Fiona - she sang beautifully and had a most attractive Scottish accent. Louise Ramsay was a wonderful Meg, wringing every last ounce of comedy with her facial expressions. John Marshall was an imposing and convincing Mr Murdoch.

The chorus work was of a high order and I have seldom heard the company sing better. An excellent evening's entertainment."
