“Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” is set in the 1850s Oregon frontier where women were scarce. Adam Pontipee (Ryan Sorensen) goes to town looking for a wife and finds one Milly Bradon (Shannon Anderson). Returning to the farm, Milly meets Adam’s six rough and tumble brothers and immediately sets about teaching them some etiquette.
After meeting other young women at a town social, they return home in a lovesick melancholy. Adam convinces the brothers that the best way to handle the situation is to kidnap the girls and a preacher, bring them back to the farm and marry them. Unfortunately, they forget the preacher, and since they can neither return to retrieve one nor return the girls due to an avalanche, they end up spending the winter in the barn “with the rest of the livestock.”
When spring arrives the girls (who had shared a mutual affection for the boys since the social) decide they would rather stay and marry the brothers than return to “those dreary towns boys.”
With highly entertaining antics and breath-taking dancing, you won’t want to miss “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.”
