Photo Coverage: Haven Academy's ANNIE GET YOUR GUN Brings the Wild West to El Segundo
Annie Oakley, Buffalo Bill, Chief Sitting Bull, and Frank Butler will appear in Haven Academy of the Arts production of ANNIE GET YOUR GUN, a musical with lyrics and music by Irving Berlin and a book by Dorothy Fields and her brother Herbert Fields. Songs that became hits include "There's No Business Like Show Business", "Doin' What Comes Natur'lly", "You Can't Get a Man with a Gun", "They Say It's Wonderful" and "Anything You Can Do."
The story is a fictionalized version of the life of Annie Oakley (1860-1926), a sharpshooter who is the best shot around and manages to support her little brother and sisters by selling the game she hunts.
Persuaded to join Buffalo Bill's travelling Wild West Show, she soon falls hopelessly in love with Frank Butler, the show's featured shooting ace. But when Annie eclipses Frank as the show's main attraction, she realizes she'll have to make some hard choices if she wants to win the man she loves.
