In Rehearsal: Seven Brides for Seven Brothers - 7th to 11th May 2019

Welcome to this behind the scenes look at Green Room Productions where we are about to commence rehearsals for Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. 

After staging several new releases and some lesser known titles, the Green Room touch is brought to this classic, much loved show. With all the exuberant energy of the original MGM film, the show is full of boisterous fun and romance.  Green Room will be staging the 2007 revised version which was seen to great acclaim at Regents Park in 2015.

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers will be directed by John Hebden and choreographed by Claire Andrews. John's recent productions for Green Room include Bonnie & Clyde (November 2018) and Zorro The Musical (November 2017).  Claire previously worked with Green Room as choreographer on our May 2018 production of Top Hat. 

The show will be officially launched at a get-together on Weds 5th December, 8.00pm at Oakmere Primary School in Potters Bar (click for details of our rehearsal venues). At the get-together the artistic team will present their ideas for the show and provide an outline of the main characters together with audition details and an initial rehearsal schedule.  All are welcome to attend; just turn up or email enquiries@greenroomproductions.co.uk to let us know you are coming.
