americana theatre presents
a backwoods bluegrass musical
july 7-24 | Tickets available NOW!
THE ROBBER BRIDEGROOM is laugh-a-minute, southern, bluegrass, musical tall-tale and a classic piece of American literature. The story (originally written by Mississippi-born writer Eudora Welty) is a southern Robin Hood fairy-tale for adults. It's about Jamie Lockhart - gentleman by day and bandit of the woods by night - who falls in love with the beautiful and feisty Rosamund. She is the daughter of a wealthy landowner whose new wife is the ugliest and meanest woman on the Natchez-Trace. Pepper in a brawny villain with no brains, a talking head (quite literally), and some of the most beautiful and fun bluegrass this side of the Mississippi and you got a recipe for a foot stomping, YEEEEE-Hawing, great time!
Come and experience the best musical you've never heard of by the South Shore's premier professional theatre company!
The show will run for three weeks from July 7 through July 24 on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The Thursday, Friday and Saturday shows will be at 7 pm and the Sunday shows will be at 2 pm.
Box Office opens one hour prior to each show and doors open 30 minutes prior to each show.
