charms and a sweet “lassie” named Fiona. The score includes classics such as “Almost Like Being in
Love,” “The Heather on the Hill,” and “Come to Me, Bend to Me.” You definitely don’t want to miss
the summer magic of Brigadoon . And, as townspeople of this mythical village might say, “Come ye
from the hills! Come ye from the mills!” and join us for a most unforgettable evening!
