Xtreme Theatre stages Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

Classic musical plays May 14-17 at the ACT in Maple Ridge

Set in Oregon in 1850, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is the story of Adam, the eldest of seven brothers, who goes to town to get a wife. He convinces Milly to marry him that same day.

They return to his backwoods home. Only then does she discover he has six brothers – all living in his cabin. Milly sets out to reform the uncouth siblings, who are anxious to get wives of their own. Then, after reading about the Roman capture of the Sabine women, Adam develops an inspired solution to his brothers’ loneliness – kidnap the women they want!

This breath-taking Xtreme Theatre production is guaranteed to put a spring in your step and a tune on your lips. Join Xtreme Theatre and their cast of 55 young adults, as they perform this showstopper at the ACT theatre in Maple Ridge.  It’s toe-tapping good!
