Irving Berlin’s Annie Get Your Gun!
Annie Oakley is the best shot around, and she manages to support her little brother and sisters by selling the game she hunts. When she is discovered by Col. Buffalo Bill, he persuades this novel sharpshooter to join his Wild West Show. It only takes one glance for her to fall head over heels for dashing shooting ace Frank Butler, who headlines the show. She soon eclipses Butler as the main attraction, which while good for business, is bad for romance. Butler hightails it off to join a rival show, his bruised male ego leading the way, but is ultimately pitted against Annie in a final shoot-out. The rousing, sure-fire finale hits the mark every time in a testament to the power of female ingenuity. Set to the immortal music of Irving Berlin, the show contains such musical theatre classics as “There’s No business Like Show Business,” “Doin’ What Comes Naturally,” “You Can’t Get a Man With a Gun,” “They Say It’s Wonderful” and “Anything You Can Do.”

Get ready for a fun, whimsical, country-western musical! The ‘Pump Boys’ sell high octane on Highway 57 in Grand Ole Opry country and, right next door, are the ‘Dinettes,’ Prudie and Rhetta Cupp, owners of the Double Cupp diner. Together, their evening of country western songs brought about unanimous raves on and off-Broadway. With heartbreak and hilarity, these lovable characters perform on guitars, piano, bass and, yes, kitchen utensils. “Both musically and theatrically, a triumph of ensemble playing. It doesn’t merely celebrate the value of friendship and life’s simple pleasures, it embodies them.” – The New York Times
“Totally terrific… it is such fun.” – NY Post
