200 year old cast are to appear in the Island Hall

THE magical village of Brigadoon only exists for one day every century and as Lisnagarvey Operatic Society have twice before performed this musical Brigadoon's inhabitants are now at least 200 years old!

Many of the original cast are still active members none more so than Heather Campbell who played the heroine Fiona MacKeith in the first production and whose daughter Claire is playing the same role in this year's show.

There is a family connection also for Tim Pentland who is playing the American tourist Tommy Albright who falls in love with Fiona. His mother Liz was the amorous milkmaid Meg Brockie in the first production and she is in the cast again this time round.
