Shawn Quinlan as Caleb in Circle's Jeff Recommened "7 Brides for 7 Brothers"

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

November 14 - December 23, 2007

Music by Gene DePaul

Lyrics by Johnny Mercerbook by Lawrence Kasha and David Landay

Directed and choreographed by Kevin Bellie

Music direction by Michael Sherman

The Oregon Frontier explodes on stage in this rollicking adaptation of the MGM movie musical. When young Millie marries Adam, she thinks her life just got easier….until she meets his six brothers. Can she teach these wild young men enough manners to allow them to woo and win a bride of their own? A vigorous score and the unbridled athleticism of the dance numbers in Seven Brides For Seven Brothers make this show the perfect antidote to the usual holiday fare. This is a production you don’t want to miss.

This show has been Jeff Recommended!
