The winter musical, Irving Berlin’s Annie Get Your Gun, will be performed in Randolph Hall Auditorium on the Greenway Rise Campus (2132 Ivy  Road) Friday, February 21 and Saturday, February 22 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, February 23 at 2:00 p.m.

This much-loved family friendly musical is appropriate for all ages. The play is based upon the life of female sharpshooter Annie Oakley and her involvement with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, which she joined to capture the heart of Frank Butler, a rival male sharpshooter.  The story, which is fully described on stageagent.com, is briefly summarized as thus:

When Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show comes into town, Annie Oakley quickly falls in love with the show’s sharpshooter, Frank Butler. Annie, an amazing sharpshooter herself, joins the show so she can win Frank. Unfortunately for Annie, Frank wants a more feminine woman and not a tomboy, gun-toting dame. Further, the fact that she can shoot better than Frank makes her his enemy. In the end, Annie lets Frank win in the sharpshooting contest. As a result, he falls in love with Annie and the two sharpshooters get married.
