“Bursting with the rambunctious energy of the original MGM film, Seven Brides For Seven Brothers is all boisterous fun and romance that harkens back to the glory days of the movie musical. A truly rollicking adventure that teaches that it takes a bride to turn seven unshaven unkempt brothers into manly gentlemen and to turn desire into romance.

Set in Oregon in 1850, Seven Brides For Seven Brothers tells the story of Millie, a young bride living in the 1850′s Oregon wilderness. Her plan to civilize and marry off her six rowdy brothers-in-law to ensure the success of her own marriage backfires when the brothers, in their enthusiasm, kidnap six women from a neighboring town to be their brides.”

Wednesday, April 25, 2018 “Church Basement Ladies – in Rise Up, O’Men”
Price Per Person: $84.00
Price Includes: Deluxe Motorcoach Transportation, Luncheon with Dessert, and Admission Ticket to the show at the Circa 21 Dinner Playhouse Theater

“Rise Up, O Men” is a brand new musical Church Basement Ladies MEN April2018featuring the men of the church and your favorite church basement ladies who serve them. As these hard-working farmers discuss their scrap lumber piles and the benefits of solder vs weld, they unintentionally disrupt the order of the kitchen. But that’s what happens when you let roosters in the hen house! Rise Up, O Men! shows us a couple of days in the life of a small rural Lutheran church circa 1964

Co-Writers Greta Grosh and Graydon Royce, together with lyricist and composer Dennis Curley, maintain the same light-hearted, folksy humor and witty songs, with sprinkles of sweetness, that has been the hot dish of this series Mavis, Karin, and Vivian are back in the kitchen frowning just a bit at the presence of the men. Turns out the kitchen needs a little fixing up, and there seems to be something wrong with the furnace. Pastor Gunderson is joined by Karin’s husband, Elroy Engelson, and handyman, Carl. We also have an appearance of an elderly Arlo to throw a little more confusion into the chaos of men in the kitchen. Between Mavis’ hot flashes, Karin’s missing mother’s ring, and Vivian’s annoyance at having men in the kitchen, more than the coils in the old refrigerator/freezer need to be aired out. The pastor has aspirations about being a comedian, but all of his jokes go down the toilet. Karin is feeling the pangs of seeing her daughter go off to college, and the Lutherans need to get their act together for the talent show.”
