Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
"Goin' courting" has never been as much fun as in this rip-roaring adaptation of the classic film.

Bursting with the rambunctious energy of the original MGM film, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is all boisterous fun and romance, that harkens back to the glory days of the movie musical. A truly rollicking adventure, which teaches that it takes a bride to turn seven unshaven, unkempt brothers into manly gentlemen... and to turn desire into romance.

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.

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is a glorious romp, suitable for middle school, high school and community theatre productions. This show's large ensemble is a perfect opportunity to showcase many performers of all types. This 2007 revised version features Dance Music Arrangements by Sam Davis.

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
