Music & Lyrics by Irving Berlin
Book by Dorothy & Herbert Fields
Choreographed by Sarah O’Gleby
Directed by Sarna Lapine (Sunday in the Park with George, Bay Street’s Frost/Nixon)
Irving Berlin’s score for ANNIE GET YOUR GUN is one of the greatest of all time. It features beloved songs including There’s No Business Like Show Business, Anything You Can Do, and They Say It’s Wonderful, all of which will be performed by a country-western, bluegrass band. It tells the story of sharpshooter Annie Oakley, who starred in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, and her tempestuous romance with fellow sharpshooter Frank Butler. Acclaimed director Sarna Lapine brings a fresh, modern approach to the story, incorporating elements from Dorothy Fields’ original book to create the strongest and most revolutionary Annie Oakley you’ve ever seen!
