    SUGAR LOAF, N.Y.-The Kings Theatre Company will present "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers," 3 p.m., Sunday, April 24, at the Lycian Centre for the Performing Arts, in Sugar Loaf, N.Y. "Goin' courting" has never been as much fun as in this rip-roaring stage version of the popular MGM movie. Millie is a young bride living in the 1850s Oregon wilderness whose plan to civilize and marry off her six rowdy brothers-in-law backfires when the brothers, in their enthusiasm, kidnap six women from a neighboring town to be their brides. Bursting with the rambunctious energy of the original film, "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" is all boisterous fun and romance that harkens back to the glory days of the movie musical. New songs by Al Kasha and Joel Hirschhorn have been added to a melody-drenched classic film score by Johnny Mercer and Gene de Paul that includes wistful ballads, charming comic turns, and rousing show-stopping dances. Songs include "Glad That You Were Born," "Bless Your Beautiful Hide," "Goin' Courting," and "Wonderful, Wonderful Day." Tickets are $45 for adults and $33.75 for those under 18. For information, call (845) 469-2287.
