The human communication and theatre department at Trinity University will present The Robber Bridgeroom, a musical written by Alfred Uhry and Robert Waldman, based on the novella by Eudora Welty, directed by Stieren Guest Artist Tim Hedgepeth, with music direction by Jim Worman, and choreography by Guest Artist Michelle Pietri.
A musical fairy tale set in 18th century Mississippi, The Robber Bridegroom is the story of Rosamund, the beautiful daughter of a rich country planter, who is wooed by Jamie Lockhart, a rascally robber of the woods. A bawdy love story, with twists and turns that include an unconventional case of double-mistaken identity, an evil stepmother, and a pea-brained henchman, combine to create a rollicking country romp.
