Set with an alpine cabin, avalanche, and seven siblings, this year’s Bulkley Valley Christian School musical rings with Smithers-style charm.
“We sang for the Cattlemen’s convention the other day and they got right into the story,” says director Chris Steenhof.
That story opens on the eldest of six brothers who, fed up with their wild ways, gets a wife in town.
But when the marriage bug strikes his backwoods brothers, it doesn’t go so smooth—an avalanche isn’t the musical’s only disaster.
With 63 students, more than half the highschool, in the cast and crew, Steenhof says Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is a whole-school effort.
“It adds a nice feeling.”
