January 22, 2015
The Pinedale Fine Arts Council (PFAC) is proud to present the classic musical Seven Brides for Seven Brothers live Thursday, January 29 at 7:00 p.m. in the Pinedale Auditorium. This will be a full-scale theatrical production featuring an ensemble New York cast and crew!
Finding a wife in the 1850ís wasnít easy for men living in the Oregon mountain region and especially when there are seven brothers in one family! Thatís how our story begins in Seven Brides For Seven Brothers.
Adam, the oldest of the seven, sets out for town to bring back a wife to take care of the cooking, cleaning and mending. In town, he meets Milly, the server and cook at the local cafť. He knows that itís sudden, but asks her to marry him. Milly is up for an adventure and says yes because sheís tired of being the cook for all the men in town and canít wait to take care of just one man. But he "forgot" to mention those other six brothers waiting back at home. After her discovery, she sets out to make the others the most eligible bachelors around!
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is a high-energy musical combining the classic, physical dancing styles with fun and energetic situations. Not only do the brothers have to dance eloquently at times with their brides, complete with eye-catching lifts and tosses, they also have fun and unique numbers that you would only see in Seven Brides. One situation includes a complicated and physical dance with axes and another with blankets as she gets them to take a bath.
Ticket prices for the Jan. 29 performance are $15 for adults and $7 for students (kids under the age of 5 are free). Tickets are available online at pinedalefinearts.com and are also on sale at Rock Rabbit, The Cowboy Shop, Office Outlet, Isabel Jewelry, The Big Piney Library and at the door the night of the performance ($2 extra).
