Family Musical

Lerner and Loewe's Brigadoon

Play synopsis:

Tommy Albright and Jeff Douglas, two American pals on a Scottish hunting trip, get lost in the woods and come upon the magical village of Brigadoon. Rising out of the Scottish mist only once every 100 years, and only for one day, Brigadoon is an enchanted place where life is simpler and easier, untouched by the worries of the modern world. When Tommy falls for beautiful villager Fiona Campbell, he must decide whether to stay or to return to his life. Including such famous hits as “Heather on the Hill” and “Almost Like Being in Love,” Lerner and Loewe’s “Brigadoon” has music that will sweep you off your feet and a whimsical story that is a tribute to the power of true love.

John O'Hara's Pirates of the Amazon: The Treasure of Mystery Island

Play Synopsis:

Pirates of the Amazon is a madcap romp that follows the adventures of Captain Jenny Silver (daughter of the notorious Long John Silver) and her stowed-away-to-become-a-pirate niece aboard a pirate ship crewed almost entirely by women!  Captain Jenny’s quest to find out where her father was banished leads her screwball crew to the HMS Betterton, in hopes of finding the man responsible.  Our heroes miraculously make their way to Mystery Island only to encounter the comedy stylings of sea monsters Eddie and Elvis, and the amazing ego of Ethel, Queen of the Mermaids.  Can anything prepare them for the monster that lives on the island?  Will Jenny find out what happened to her father?  Pirates of the Amazon asks a lot of questions and provides a lot of laughs.

  • Director: Zac Thompson
