Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre ~ Friday Evening, April 25
Dinner and the play “Seven Brides For Seven Brothers” was our gift to any of our children and grandchildren who wanted to go along to celebrate their 2014 birthday. It was also our family celebration for Cerwin’s birthday.
Jesse and Jared entertained themselves with the overhead mirrors while we waited for the theatre doors to open. 🙂
Depending on how they moved, it looked like they had two heads.
After being ushered to our tables, we enjoyed a delicious dinner.
Nate, Josh, Allie (hidden), Jana, Jenna, and Gloria looking over the program.
Ian, Jared, Jesse, Cerwin, me, Dee (a friend), Deb and Roy were at the table next to them. You can see Jere and Kristen at the table to the left.
Nathaniel and Abby shared their table.
A broader shot of our three tables.
Jesse sneaking some of Nate’s coffee.
Deb bought Cerwin and herself a virgin pina colada. I asked them to pose for a photo.
By 7:30 it was time to relax and enjoy the play.
This is a photo from Dutch Apple’s website. If you are not familiar with Seven Brides For Seven Brothers, it is a humorous 1954 musical.
Setting: 1850 Oregon
Storyline: Adam, the eldest of seven brothers, goes to town to get a wife. He convinces Milly to marry him that same day. They return to his backwoods home. Only then does she discover he has six brothers – all living in his cabin. Milly sets out to reform the uncouth siblings, who are anxious to get wives of their own. Then, after reading about the Roman capture of the Sabine women, Adam develops an inspired solution to his brothers’ loneliness.
It was delightful and funny with fabulous singing and dancing.
