‘Seven Brides’ play at college to benefit Youth Theater Project
Here comes the bride ... no, make that seven brides.
Adult community theater company The Theater Project will present a stage version of the MGM movie “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers,” with proceeds from the performances going to The Youth Theater Project, a tuition-free theater and dance program of students in the Grand Valley.
Shows are 7 p.m. Friday, June 17, and 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday, June 18, at the Moss Performing Arts Center, Robinson Theater, at Mesa State College, 1231 N. 12th St.
Rebecca Felix (Millie), Rich Lyon (Adam) and director Dana Schmidt-Clingman lead a cast of 45 area actors and actresses in the musical.
A news release synopsis of the fun-filled show explains how Millie, a young bride living in the 1850s Oregon wilderness, plans to civilize and marry off her six rowdy brothers-in-law to ensure the success of her own marriage. Her plan backfires when the brothers, in their enthusiasm, kidnap six women from a neighboring town to be their brides.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for seniors and students. General admission tickets can be purchased at the door or reserved online at http://www.CreativeAvenues GJ.com.
