Georgia Southern to Host Performance of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
Georgia Southern University’s Performing Arts Center will host a Broadway stage version of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, the popular MGM movie, on Saturday, March 28, at 7:30 p.m.
Set in Oregon in 1850, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers tells the story of Millie, a young bride living in the 1850s Oregon 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. Featuring raucous song and dance numbers and 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 the seventh national tour for the Prather Touring production. The performance company has previously toured Beehive, the 60s Musical in 2007, the 10th anniversary tour of Footloose in 2008/2009, The Wedding Singer in 2010, All Shook Up in 2011, Blast in 2012 and Fiddler on the Roof in 2013.
