Empire High School’s Theatre Department, under the direction of Richard Gremel, performs Irving Berlin’s “Annie Get Your Gun”.
When Buffolo Bill’s Wild West Show comes into town, Annie Oakley, the famed sharpshooter, quickly falls in love with the show’s star, Frank Butler. After winning a shooting match against Frank Butler, Annie joins the show so she can try and marry 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 biggest competition. Frank decides to leave his love and join up with the show’s biggest rival, Pawnee Bill. In the end, Annie has to do what it takes to win Frank back and merge the two Wild West Shows.
This production stars Jeanne Torres as Annie Oakley and Ryan Cummings as Frank Butler along with an all-star cast of Empire High School Drama Students performing famous songs by composer Irving Berlin like “There’s No Business Like Show Business”, “They Say It’s Wonderful”, “You Can’t Get a Man With a Gun”, and “Anything You Can Do (I Can Do Better)”.
Tickets: Adults $7.00, Students and preschoolers $5.00 in cash at door.
