Holiday Season at The Shaw

Make sure you celebrate the holiday season with the return of one of the most romantic and magical musicals! What would you give up for love? Stumbling upon a magical village that appears out of the Scottish mist for one day every century, Tommy, a modern boy, meets Fiona, a girl from the past. Should he stay with her in Brigadoon, or return to the world he knows and never see her again? This feast of song and dance from Lerner and Loewe (the team behind My Fair Lady) has been entrancing audiences for more than seven decades. Classic songs like “Almost like being in love” and “I’ll go home with Bonnie Jean” will stay with you forever.
