Rockford College presents "The Robber Bridegroom,” a musical by Alfred Uhry, October 7 to 10 in the college’s Maddox Theatre. Performances are set for 7:30 p.m. Thursday – Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday.

A rousing, bawdy Southern fairy tale set in 18th century Mississippi, "The Robber Bridegroom” is the story of the courting of Rosamund, the only daughter of the richest planter in the country, by Jamie Lockhart, a rascally robber of the woods.

The proceedings go awry, thanks to an unconventional case of double-mistaken identity. Throw in an evil stepmother intent on Rosamund’s demise, her pea-brained henchman and a hostile talking head-in-a-trunk, and you have the recipe for a rollicking country romp.

Tickets are $10 for adults; seniors and students $7. Season subscribers get one ticket for free. Call the Rockford College box office, 815-226-4100, for more information. Box office hours are Monday - Friday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and one hour before show time.
