Tommy, who is engaged back in New York, falls in love with Fiona, a young woman from Brigadoon.

Adult tickets are $15, and K-12 youth tickets are $5. The musical is FREE for Wartburg students with valid ID. All tickets are general admission. Wartburg student tickets will be given at the door when ID is presented. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to the show start time.


More than 30 Wartburg students are involved in the production, and the Wartburg College Opera Workshop is led by Wartburg professors Brian Pfaltzgraff and Jennifer Larson.
