Pepperdine Theatre Department Presents Fall Musical Brigadoon
Inspired by Friedrich Gerstacker's 19th-century story "Germelshausen," Brigadoon tells the story of two American tourists who stumble upon a Scottish village that disappears into the Highland mist and returns for only one day each century. Performances of this 1947 Tony Award-winning musical run Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 8 to 10 and 15 to 17, at 7:30 p.m. in Smothers Theatre on the Pepperdine University campus in Malibu. A matinee performance will show at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 11.
Songs such as "Waitin' for My Dearie," and "Almost Like Being in Love," capture the audience by showing the true love and goodness in people that may not be immediately noticed. Bill Szobody directs the student cast of 37, with Tony Cason conducting the Pepperdine University Orchestra. The production is a collaboration between the University's music and theatre departments as part of the Mary Pickford-Stotsenberg Performances Series.
Tickets, priced at $20 for the general public, $16 for Pepperdine faculty and staff, and $10 for Pepperdine students, may be purchased by contacting the Smothers Theatre Box Office at (310) 506-4522, or visiting the Center for the Arts Web site.
