While cast members are in full rehearsal mode and the production crew is busy building sets, Valley Regional Musical Productions (VRMP) has announced that tickets are now on sale for the school’s performance of BRIGADOON set for Friday, March 22 at 7:00 pm, Saturday, March 23 at 1:00 pm and at 7:00 pm, and Sunday, March 24 at 1:00 pm. Set in a Scottish village that comes out of the Highland mists for one day every 100 years, BRIGADOON is a whimsical musical fantasy created by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Lowe. This beloved classic tells a story of tradition, family and the importance of being true to oneself.
“Our goal is to transport the audience to a magical time of tradition and authenticity while telling a story that takes place in the very past and the very present,” commented VRMP Director Ingrid Walsh. “We have all enjoyed immersing ourselves in the heritage and culture of the Scottish people and aim to do them proud.”
A relatively new set design technique of projecting animated images will be used to present two scenes, one in the past and one in the present, on stage at one time. The animation sequence is being created by the school’s Set Design art class taught by Val Krop.
All seats are $12, general admission. A special preview show on Thursday, March 21 has been added to this year’s production dates, giving the audience an opportunity to sit in on the full dress rehearsal for a lower ticket price of $10 per person. Tickets can be purchased at Gather in Ivoryton, Celebrations in Deep River, The Wheatmarket in Chester, Toys Ahoy! in Essex and Valley Regional High School. More information is available at vrhs.reg4.k12.ct.us or by calling the school at 860-526-5328.
