Scottish authenticity

Foothill director Jay Manley is big into authenticity. Even when he tackles these "old-fashioned" musicals, he really likes to root them in real life...or how real life would have been at that time. (You know, in a village that goes to sleep for 100 years.)

So, how do you bring authenticity to Brigadoon?

Well, how about making it sound right?

You can start with the Scottish dialect (which isn't easy.) So we've got dialect coach, Tom Gough (here, working with Karen DeHart)

But best of all we have our very own authentic Bagpiper!

I know it's not quite everyone's cup of tea, but I have always loved me some bagpipes!!
