April 18-June 9, 2013 – Annie Get Your Gun

Annie Get Your GunThree of the greatest names in American Musical Theatre – Richard Rodgers,  Oscar Hammerstein and Irving Berlin – came together to create one of the most original and beloved musical comedies of all time, ANNIE GET YOUR GUN. Many shows claim to be classics but this one truly is. It tells the tale of Annie Oakley – the world’s greatest sharpshooter – and her topsy turvy, hilarious journey to find fortune, fame, and true love. Along the way she meets Buffalo Bill, Chief Sitting Bull, and an array of colorful characters who help her in her quest. Yet they still find time to sing some of the greatest songs ever to be sung on Broadway. Every song is a hit including “Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better,” “The Sun in the Morning and the Moon At Night,” “I Got Lost in His Arms,” and that great anthem of the American stage “There’s No Business Like Show Business.”
