7 Brides for 7 Brothers


With the Clark Historic Farm as a unique backdrop, the Grantsville Performing Arts Council put on its first theatrical production, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, on August 7,8,9 &11, 2014. The show involved over 50 volunteers who contributed their efforts to directing, acting, choreography, lighting and sound, set building, site prep, ticket sales, program design, concession sales, etc. Others donated their generators, props and concessions, and the result was four fabulous evening performances, equal in quality and talent to any you might find at Sundance or elsewhere. We hope to make this an annual event!
