Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers





The big dance adaptation of the film of the same name that flopped after only five performances.


Story:

When Adam brings his new wife Milly home to care for his six brothers she teaches them all to dance and attempts to reform them. Kidnapping the girls they fall for and keeping their suitors at bay by causing an avalanche may not seem like the stuff of love, but these are no ordinary brothers or ordinary wives-to-be.
