Annie Get Your Gun, the musical, is a fictionalized version of the life of Annie Oakley. Annie’s (Devon Perry) ability as a sharpshooter wins her a job in Buffalo Bill's (Gary Lynch) Wild West show. Her brilliant shooting offends the masculinity of the show's star marksman, handsome baritone Frank Butler (Gregg Goodbrod), and makes a romance between the pair impossible. A happy ending only arrives when wise old Sitting Bull (Marshall Factora) gently demonstrates to the naive Oakley that she can easily win the insecure Butler by intentionally losing a shooting competition. The rousing, sure-fire finale hit’s the mark every time. With songs such as “There’s No Business Like Show Business”, “The Girl That I Marry” and “Anything You Can Do” this wonderful Irving Berlin score will score a hit for all of us!
