Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

The classic MGM musical film translates very excitingly into a live theatrical experience, heightened by the competitive athleticism of the brothers, their rivals, and the young women they are pursuing. Audiences love the visceral thrill of the dancing, and the tuneful musical score is exciting to hear. The beautiful vistas of this set design iconically depict Oregon in all its sprawling beauty.
