The 1947 Lerner and Loewe musical, which opened last weekend at Brentwood’s sublime Heritage High School theater, was quite an undertaking for the budding troupe, now in its third season, already having performed at three different venues. But, with the gifted director Steve Kinsella and producer/actor Jack Gaughan at the helm, backed by a dedicated creative team and dynamite cast, this “Brigadoon” dazzles.
