'Brigadoon'

HAVERHILL, MA — In May of 1971, the Living Presence Experimental Theatre, directed by the late Eileen Miller Jeans, presented a production of Lerner & Loewe’s musical, “Brigadoon” at Haverhill High School auditorium. Now, over forty years later, John Buzzell, who appeared in that production as “Mr. Lundie” is now directing the well-known musical in a new production being presented by The Pentucket Players Inc. of the Merrimack Valley.

The musical fantasy is being staged at Merrimack College’s Rogers Center for the Arts on April 19 and 20 at 8:00 p.m. and April 20 and 21 at 2:00 p.m.

“Brigadoon” tells the story of an enchanted village, deep in the Highlands of Scotland, that appears for one day every 100 years. The award-winning musical score features such memorable hits as, “Almost Like Being In Love,” and the beautiful wedding song, “Come to Me; Bend to Me.”

Buzzell is a resident of Haverhill and is the Executive Artistic Director for the group, which he co-founded nineteen years ago. Conducting the pit of twelve professional musicians, as well as music-directing the cast of over forty, is Alan Freedman of North Andover. Original choreography, including the high-stepping “Sword Dance” has been created by Annemarie LaTulip of Lawrence, MA. Ms. LaTulip also appears in the role of Bonnie Jean. Marie Bliven of Methuen serves as group president and has also designed the costumes for the production. With scenic effects created by local artist, Leslie McGrath, and multiple settings created by the show carpenters, the production stands up to the group’s high standards.

Tickets are available online at www.pentucketplayers.org or at the door. All seats are $24.00. Group sale prices are available by calling 978-688-2755.
