“Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” Next in Lyceum Series

The Kohlenberg Lyceum Series will continue with a performance of “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” at 7:30 p.m. March 3 in Baldwin Auditorium

“Goin’ courting” has never been as much fun as in this rip-roaring stage version of the popular MGM movie. Set in Oregon in 1850, “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” tells the story of Milly, a young bride living in the wilderness. Her plan to civilize and marry off her six rowdy brothers-in-law to ensure the success of her own marriage backfires when the brothers, in their enthusiasm, kidnap six women from a neighboring town to be their brides. Bursting with the rambunctious energy of the original film, “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” is all boisterous fun and romance that harkens back to the glory days of the movie musical.

“Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” is produced by Prather Entertainment Group and is under the direction of Dean Sobon with choreography by Kerry Lambert.
