Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

PLATTEVILLE, Wis.—The University of Wisconsin-Platteville’s Center for the Arts will present “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” on Friday, Feb. 27, in the Richard and Helen Brodbeck Concert Hall at 7 p.m. as part of the 2014-15 Performing Arts Series. The performance is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Lyle and Ruth Olson Fund.

The performance, a stage version of the popular Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer movie, “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers,” is about a young bride living in the 1850s wilderness who plans to civilize and marry off her six brothers-in-law to make sure her own marriage succeeds. Her plan backfires when the brothers kidnap six women from a neighboring town to be their brides.

“This is a high-energy musical with classic dancing numbers in the MGM movie style,” said Michael Breitner, director of the Center for the Arts. “I think that the audience will have a great time.”

Tickets for the event are $30 for general admission, $28 for seniors 62 and over, $15 for children under 18, and $23 for UW-Platteville students with current ID.

Tickets are available through the University Box Office, located in the lower level of Ullsvik Hall. Phone orders can be made by calling toll free at 877-727-1CFA. Tickets are also available through the online Box Office at

The final performance of the 2014-15 Performing Arts Series is “The Randy Sabien Ensemble” on Saturday, March 7. The performance will feature Sabien, a strings educator, jazz master, music author and record producer, on violin.

As UW-Platteville pursues its vision of being recognized as the leading student-focused university for its success in achieving excellence, creating opportunities and empowering each individual, it is guided by four strategic planning priorities. The Performing Arts Series aligns with three of the priorities, including providing an outstanding education, fostering a community of achievement and respect and enriching the tri-state region.
