Auditions for 

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers


Based upon the Academy Award-nominated 1954 film, this musical tells the story of the headstrong Adam Pontipee who comes to a small mountain town in search of a good wife. When he meets the headstrong Milly it will change his life – for better or for worse! Millie’s plan is to civilize and marry off her six rowdy brothers-in-law to ensure the success of her own marriage but it backfires when the brothers, in their enthusiasm, kidnap six women from a neighboring town to be their brides! Exuberant dancing, romance, and tons of fun make this classic show one of the greatest musicals of all time!
