Seven Brides for Seven Brothers at Riverside
July 26 - September 24
SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS Bursting with rambunctious energy, fun, and romance, this musical frontier adventure set in 1850s Oregon tells the story of Milly, a new bride who finds herself caring for her husband Adams six slovenly brothers at their wilderness ranch. With a mind to transforming the brothers into civilized marriage material, she attempts to teach them the social graces in preparation for a church gathering in town. But the overly enthusiastic brothers take matters into their own hands when, sparked by desire, they kidnap six women from town who then become stranded at the ranch for the winter. Milly banishes the men from the house while the women are there, and by the time spring arrives, the brothers realize their error and decide to escort the women back to town. Theyre met by the townsfolks rescue party who assumes the worst, and even though love has bloomed with the spring thaw, a rollicking shotgun wedding ensues. Featured songs include Wonderful, Wonderful Day, Goin Courtin, Sobbin Women, A Woman Ought To Know Her Place, and Glad That You Were Born.
