Admission Friday and Saturday cost $20 per day and Sunday is only $15. Children under 16 are admitted free when accompanied by a paid adult.

    Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

    It's going to be another scorching weekend in Bowling Green, so why not enjoy some indoor entertainment presented by local theatre troupe Fountain Square Players? This Thursday through Saturday evening and again Sunday afternoon, FSP will be performing Seven Brides for Seven Brothers by Lawrence Kasha and David Landay, with music by Gene de Paul and Joel Hirschhorn. Writers Guild of America says, "Best written American musical," and the show received an Oscar for best music and scoring of a musical.

    Synopsis: 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. The show is fun, fast-paced, sometimes raucous, sometimes sweet, and always entertaining. With seven great songs, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers proves to be a lusty, mirthful, girl-stealing musical!

    Tickets are $14 for adults, $12 for senior/students, and $10 for children under 12. Call 270-782-3119, or visit the link below for more information and to order tickets.
