Brigadoon was presented at Foremost Community Hall before near capacity au- diences on three recent eve- nings. It was under the di- rection of Alyce Butterwick of Foremost. Musical' director was Es- ther Weeks of Orion. The story is set in Scotland as two 20th Century hunters, Tommy Albright and Jeff Douglas, on vacation from New York, are mysteriously projected back into the 18th Century. The two were con- vincingly portrayed by Bill Buis, Jr., and George Butterwick. They are lost "in the Scottish mists, and as they contemplate their pre- dicament, a lift in the High- land veil reveals to them the awakening village of Briga- doon, a village that comes to life for only one day in each century as the result of a "miracle." Each group finds the other very strange in speech and in custom. The villagers have gathered in the market -square to sell their wares and to discuss the final prepara- tions for the wedding of Jean- nie MacLaren, (Joan to the boyish Charlie Dalrymple, (Cliff Enter Tommy and Jeff to add complications to the oth- erwise blissful scene. Tommy falls 3n love with Jeannie's sister Fiona, played by Mu- riel Luca, and Jeff finds him- seIf reluctantly entangled with the maid Meg Brockie, Defores Butterwick giving one of her usual strong perform- ances in this role. DON'T LEAVE If anyone Jeaves Brigadoon the spell is broken for all. Harry Beaton, portrayed by Calvin Kultgen. threatens to do this because of Ms reject- ed love for Jeannie. He has to be prevented from leaving, at the cost of bis life. Tommy must decide wheth- er he wishes to return with Jeff to New York or stay for- ever in Brigadoon with Fi- ona. He decides to go back to his fiancee, Jane Ashton, (Beverly He finds this world unsatisfying and the call of the Highlands, particu- larly his love for Fiona, is stronger. TOMMY RETURNS Finally, Tommy returns once more to Scotland, to be welcomed back into the mists of time by schoolmaster Mr. Lundie (Fred leaving behind the 20th Cen- tury and all his friends, in- cluding Jeff Douglas. Leading performers Bill Buis, Muriel Luca, George Butterwick and Delores But- terwick, all veterans of pre- vious For emost productions, were tops. George Butterwick's humor- ous lines and his mimicry of Jane Ashton in the New York bar scene was delightful. Strong performances were given in some of the minor roles. Bill Butterwick, a star of past productions, again came strongly to the fore in his role as Andrew Mac- Laren. Local hotelier Mac Kennedy was great as the bartender. Other roles were played by Harvey Beacome. Joe Jack- son, Bryan Dfllenbeck and Bruce Nicoll. The musical features a to- tal of 15 songs and four dances. The best known sons' was that of Tommy and Fi- ona. It's Almost Like Being in Love, with which the first act ended. Calvin Kultgens rendition of the Sword, Dance brought prolonged applause from an enthusiastic audience. The choreography was under San- dra Wickend's direction.

Wednvtctoy, April 4, 1973 THE tCTHBRIOGE HERALD _ 3 New play areas for booming town Sparwood Lions boost bocci NATAL (HNS) The Efc- trict of Sparwood council has awarded land to the Sparwood Lions Club for two projects; a bocci court (Italian in the area of tte senior citi- zens housing project, and a.chil- dren's playground in the lower part of Sparwood. Council advised the Lions that two parcels of land would be available and they should work in co-operation with the two commissions. The parcel granted for the bocci court and picnic area is part of the undeveloped land behind the senior citizens hous- ing project. The land designated for the playground is behind the.mobile home lots in lower Sparwood and is adjacent to the recre- ation complex. If the two commissions agree with council that these two par- cels of land are suited to the proposals of the Lions Club, the club can go ahead with its plans for the development. The plans in turn will be re- viewed by the commissions and will later be returned to council. A meeting of 'the school board was set to complete the location of the new elementary school for the area. Council em- powered its committee to settle, the price question. The 10-acre parcel of land to be offered to tlie school board is below Pine, Avenue and west of the recre-' ation complex.
