Somewhere, there is a town that only shows up for one day every 100 years. This place is Brigadoon (make sure to read that with a thick Scottish accent, Breee-gaaa-doooon).

I watched and photographed my roommate Jenny in a local dress rehearsal of Brigadoon at the Waterworks Theatre in Farmville. 

A youngster watching his Mom and sister perform was sitting up front and he knew every song.
He was also giving me photography pointers, “you should take a picture of them sitting down.”

It was great watching some friends sing and dance. A bunch of people put on their best Scottish accent’s. Some local students were the audience and seemed to be enjoying the show.

*whisper* “they’re going to kiss soon.” The youngster said with a gleam in his eye. I took a photo of that.

The director was the crotchety old drama fella, intent on perfection. I had complimented him on the work he does in theatre and he just said, “we’ll see,” which I took as “I am putting everything into this play and it better be perfect” then he barked some orders to some folks nearby.

Go watch some local theatre if you get a chance. And if you are in Farmville on March 22, and 23 at 8pm watch the premiere of Brigadoon. And sit next to the little man with blond hair up front, he will tell you when all the good parts are.

“I know all the songs” 

Brigadoon only comes around every 100 years.

“I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.”
– Oscar Wilde
