'Brigadoon' brings musical magic to Holt

    Looking for a story of love,
    innocence and little bit of magic? Look no further than Holt/Dimondale
    Community Players’ production of “Brigadoon.”

    “‘Brigadoon’ proves to stand out in
    the hundreds of musicals that audiences can see,” said Patrick Monroe, the
    show’s producer.

    “Brigadoon” is the story of a Scottish village that emerges
    from a magical mist for one day every hundred years. When two American
    villagers stumble upon the village on that magical day, their arrival
    complicates matters in the enchanted town.

    “We have a great group of actors
    with a lot of talent, so it should have a great outcome,” he said. The actors
    come from all around Holt, ranging in age from 8 to nearly 70 years old,
    and vary in experience from theater majors to first-time actors. 

    “Brigadoon” is Monroe’s first shot
    at producing, although he has been acting in productions with HDCP since 2007.
    After reading the script, he fell in love with story.

    “I think that with this ever-changing society that audiences can be swept away in a story about love and
    innocence,” said Monroe.

    Performances will be in the
    auditorium of Holt Jr. High School at 7 p.m. Sept. 9-11 and 16-18 with a 1 p.m.
    matinee on Sept. 18.Tickets are
    $10 for adults, and $7 for students and seniors.
