Based on a popular movie, "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" is the story of the Pontipee brothers who are living a rough and lonely existence on their woodland farm. The eldest brother, Adam makes the trip from the farm in the rugged Oregon territory countryside to town to pick up some goods for the months ahead, including a wife. He stumbles on Milly, a serving girl with passion and sass, who falls for his sweet talk about the farming life. They are quickly married, but when Milly returns with Adam to his home, she finds there are six rowdy brothers living there.

Milly valiantly attempts to civilize the brothers so they can find brides of their own. But Milly’s plan backfires when the brothers decide to go find six women to be their brides. What follows is a hilarious series of events full of dancing, fighting and even kidnapping.

"Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" is full of comedy, show-stopping dances and charming melodies including "Wonderful, Wonderful Day," "Bless Your Beautiful Hide," "Sobbin’ Women," and "Goin’ Courtin’."
