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 (Adam Kemmerer), 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!

Written by Herbert & Dorothy Fields, the show premiered on Broadway at the Imperial Theatre in 1946 and ran for 1,147 performances. Directed by Joshua Logan, the show starred Ethel Merman as Annie, Ray Middleton as Frank Butler, The musical toured the U.S. in 1947 with Mary Martin as Annie.
