The romantic musical fantasy "Brigadoon" opens at Aurora Community Theatre April 28.
"Brigadoon," with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe is set in the Scottish Highlands where Brigadoon, a mysterious village, appears from the mist for just one day every 100 years.
Dustin Oliver directs, with Tim Shaffer as music director. The story revolves around Tommy Albright, played by Ron Davis, and Jeff Douglas, performed by Sam Kitzler, two somewhat jaded young American businessmen.

There the travelers meet the MacLaren family, headed by Andrew (Bernie Keister), who are preparing for the wedding of daughter, Jean (Shelby Carlisle) to Charlie Dalrymple (Kevin Rabbits). Tommy quickly catches the eye of MacLaren's daughter Fiona, (Emily Zart.)
