Webster Conservatory Presents Whimsical Love Story 'Brigadoon,' April 18-22
Running April 18-22 in the Browning Mainstage Theatre. Call 314-968-7128 for tickets.

The Conservatory of Theatre Arts at Webster University presents the whimsical love story Brigadoon, where two New Yorkers find themselves lost on vacation in the Scottish Highlands.

Brigadoon will run April 18-22 and is one of several events celebrating the Conservatory of Theatre Arts 50th Anniversary.  View the complete list of events and celebrations here.

When Tommy Albright and Jeff Douglas get lost on a vacation, they stumble into Brigadoon. Brigadoon is a mythical village that appears for a single day once every hundred years. After falling head over heels for the headstrong Fiona, Tommy is forced to choose between returning to the world that he knows — or taking a chance on love in a mysterious new place. 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 coupled with a whimsical story that is a tribute to the power of true love.

Critical Acclaim for 'Brigadoon'

"‘When you love deeply enough,’ Lundie says, in the best moment of the show, ‘anything is possible. Even miracles.’ So we all like to believe, especially while watching a musical. So the endeavor is worthy. And significant, worthy work has been done here. [...] The choreography is both delicate and engaged with the narrative. The big production numbers are rich, detailed and respectful in their pageantry.” - Los Angeles Times
