Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
In this quintessentially and unmistakably American take on the war between the sexes, seven empowered frontier women take charge of their destinies (and their men) in 1850s Oregon.

Based on the classic film, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is an authentic piece of Americana, a time-tested romantic comedy with a special, contemporary relevance. Bringing the raucous Oregon frontier from the screen to the stage, it is a crowd-pleasing hit that has audiences cheering from the opening scene to the curtain call. Saddle up for a joyride in this tale of stubborn men and cunning women.

The men in question are Adam and his six unruly brothers, who think they know what a woman's place is and how to keep her there. It takes Milly, Adam's spirited new wife, and six other savvy women to show them who's the boss.

As a film, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers delighted audiences with its whirlwind romances, memorable songs, and iconic choreography, and this energetic and adventurous staged version does the same. With its large ensemble, the show is perfect for community theatres and university and college productions that want to showcase a wide range of talent and guarantee everyone a starring moment.

Can we add a make-up show due to weather?

Hi we are performing Seven Brides for Seven Brothers here in Manassas, Virginia for the next two weekends. We are licenced for 5 performances.  We are now expecting a freak snow storm that is likely to cancell two of our performances this weekend.  Are we allowed to add a matinee next weekend on the 15th?  We would still be short one of our shows, but that would allow us to have 4 performances?  


If that is fine with you, could you send me an email stating that is the case so that MT Pit will allow us to extend our rental of their orchestrations also.


Thank you so much for your time and attention to this matter!



Erin Vander Woude,  Producer.

Score info needed
Hi, I am currently on the slate to MD Seven Brides..... and The Wedding Singer. I am looking for more specific score questions: difficulty of parts, superfluous parts, etc. If any of you MD's or Conductors are willing to field my questions or refer me to specific websites, chatrooms, etc. I would really appreciate it. I am trying to recruit my players early as the good ones tend to be booked up by the time the actual material arrives.Thanks
