Posted: Wednesday, August 25, 2010 8:01 pm
Cumberland County Playhouse starts Fall 2010 with the color and Scots Appalachian heritage of Lerner and Loewe’s BRIGADOON, opening on the Mainstage September 9, and sponsored by the “3000 square feet of fun” at Discovery Depot and The Candy Caboose of Cookeville. BRIGADOON is a magical Scottish village that appears for one day every hundred years, yet if one from Brigadoon ever leaves, the spell is broken and the village disappears in the mist forever.
Playhouse star and multiple national-tour veteran, Britt Hancock plays American hunter Tommy Albright, who meets new Playhouse brunette beauty Lindy Penzick as Fiona McLaren of Brigadoon, one misty morning in the Scots Highlands. Albright’s hunting buddy is played by resident actor Daniel Black (DUCK HUNTER, SMOKE), with featured guest Greg Pendzick as stunning Celtic tenor Charlie Dalrymple, on whose decision to leave Brigadoon, the musical story turns.
Also starring is Nashville Top-ten songwriter Bobby Taylor as wise Mr. Lundie, and feisty newcomer Nicole Bowles as flirty Meg Brockie. Taylor, who directs and stars in the new 2010 CCP production of SMOKE ON THE MOUNTAIN, along with returning SMOKE favorites Jason Ross and Patty Pa;yne, starred in the New York Off-Broadway production of SMOKE after being “discovered” by SMOKE creator Alan Bailey .
BRIGADOON, a Broadway hit and multiple Tony Award Winner, starred Gene Kelly in the famous film. Michele Colvin directs and choreographs, with Ron Murphy leading the infectiously gorgeous music, including standards like ALMOST LIKE BEING IN LOVE, and Celtic beauties like COME TO ME, BEND TO ME.
Currently at the Playhouse is romantic, risque’ musical comedy, A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC, rated PG-13 for mature themes, situations and language, thru October 1; and the poignant, witty, late-in-life love story, SOUTHERN COMFORTS, rated PG and sponsored by Mariner’s Pointe and Tennessee Heart, thru November 11.
