Name: Alice Lillydahl

School, grade: Highland Middle School, eighth grade

Character: Fiona

Tell me about "Brigadoon." "Brigadoon" is about a magical town in Scotland that appears once every two years. Two men show up from New York. One of them, Tommy, falls in love with Fiona, and that's me. Then he has to decide if he wants to stay and leave everything or go back to New York.

Tell me about your character, Fiona. She's sort of like a role model to the other people in the town. She has a straight-forward view of marriage and love. Then Tommy shows up.

What's your favorite song in the musical? "There But For You Go I." Tommy sings it to Fiona.

Why should people see this production? It's a beautiful story. It's just happy and joyful. And there's a lot of dancing; the dancing is so good in this show.
