In this unmistakably American take on the war between the sexes, seven frontier women take charge of their destinies (and their men) in 1850s Oregon. Based on the classic film, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is an authentic piece of Americana, a time-tested romantic comedy with a special, contemporary relevance. Saddle up for a western joyride that features great songs like, Bless Your Beautiful Hide, Going Courtin’ and The Sobbin’ Women – plus some of the greatest dance sequences ever on the stage! When Adam and his six unruly brothers think they know what a woman’s place is, Adam’s spirited new wife and a cohort of potential brides show ‘em who’s boss in this golden age American musical.

CHIVALRY Runs Aug. 2-4

TROY_Chivalry promoCHIVALRY
Troy Civic Theatre
Aug. 2-4
Troy City Park

Written by Todd and Kathy Bryant
Directed by Kathy Bryant

CHIVALRY is a comedy that celebrates geek culture: Dungeons & Dragons, comics, sci-fi, etc. Charlie Angle is a PhD in Medieval history, whose passion in life is his conviction that the tenets of Chivalry need to be revived in our modern culture. He owns and operates a fantasy hobby store that is not doing well financially – a source of stress due to the fact that his wife, Morgan, is pregnant. Charlie is in search of a noble quest when he overhears a conversation about a hidden trunk containing several million dollars in cash (from a drug deal gone bad). The only other person who knows about the money is Charlie’s lowlife neighbor, Rob. Can a group of role-playing geeks outwit an underworld thug at his own game and beat him to the treasure? (There is some mild language and a stabbing)

ROCK OF AGES Runs Aug. 8-11

QCP_Rock of Ages logoROCK OF AGES
Queen City Productions
Aug. 8-11
Theatre 42 [Lebanon]

The show tells the story of Drew and Sherrie, two star-crossed lovers in the “mid-to-late eighties, roughly.” They are both trying to make it big, Sherrie as an actress and Drew as rock-god. Of course, waiting up and down the boulevard to fame, are an array of people and situations that will test their love and their dreams, all underscored by some of the biggest 80’s rock anthems ever written. They will learn that sometimes the dreams you come in with, aren’t always the dreams you end up with, but hey, they still rock!
