The long-running popular musical “Brigadoon” will be performed April 5-21 at the Holly Theater in Dahlonega.

The cast is led by Brenau theater student Carly Berg and theater veteran and Cumming native Gary Hefflefinger. They play Fiona and Tommy, both looking for their true love and finding each other by the most unlikely of circumstances.

Brigadoon is a charming and mysterious Scottish village not found on any map and appears only one day every 100 years. Vacationing New Yorkers Tommy and Jeff stumble upon the village to find the villagers preparing for a festival and the wedding of Charlie Dalrymple, played by Hall County native Drew Ferguson, and Jean McLaren, played by Taylor Cassell.

The performance is directed by Bruce Pilgrim, retired head of the fine arts department at Lumpkin County High School, and assistant director Kim Zillioux.

Live pipers and numbers such as “Almost Like Being in Love,” “Come to Me Bend to Me,” “The Heather on the Hill,” and “MacConnachy Square” are led by musical co-director Michael Arens, co-director and accompanist Ruth Purcell and choreographer Colleen Quigley.

The cast takes the audience through a festive day in Brigadoon and through beautifully decorated sets constructed by Jim Fambrough.

Performances begin at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays.

Tickets are $18 and can be purchased at the door, online at, or by calling the Holly Box Office at 706-864-3759 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Mondays.
