Cast Announced for Hill Country Community Theatre's ANNIE GET YOUR GUN

The Hill Country Community Theatre is pleased to announce principal casting for Irving Berlin's hit musical Annie Get Your Gun. This musical spectacle, written by Herbert and Dorothy Fields, celebrates the legendary sure-shot, Annie Oakley. The show features timeless hits like "Anything You Can Do," "You Can't Get a Man with a Gun," and the song that has become the anthem of all things theatre: "There's No Business Like Show Business." Annie Get Your Gun will be directed by Wendy Ferrell and features musical direction by Les Young, choreography by Virginia Shoemake, and scenic design by Stephanie Ellis.

Christine Ashbaugh and Henry Rowland star as Annie Oakley and Frank Butler. Other principal roles include Randy L. Hilmer as Buffalo Bill, Seth Smith as Sitting Bull, Jordan Jones as Charlie Davenport, Grace Todd as Dolly Tate, Jared Fields as Pawnee Bill, Zach Young as Little Jake, Riley Gisi as Nellie, Valor Fillingim as Jessie, Izzy Schafer as Minnie, Charles McLean as Mac, and Lew Cohn as Foster Wilson.

"Annie Get Your Gun is Americana at it's very best," says Mike Rademaekers, HCCT's executive director. "Any story that blends romance, show business, the old American Wild West and the unforgettable music of Irving Berlin makes for an extraordinary night at the theatre. Annie Get Your Gun will not disappoint!"

The musical tells the story of the legendary Annie Oakley, the best shot around. Buffalo Bill persuades this sharpshooter to join his Wild West Show. She falls for dashing shooting ace Frank Butler, who headlines the show, and soon eclipses him. Butler joins a rival show but is pitted against Annie in a final shoot-out. Annie Get Your Gun will open on July 21 and run through July 31. Performances will be on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30 PM and Sunday matinees at 2:15 PM. Tickets will go on sale July 11 for HCCT members and July 14 for the general public.

The Hill Country Community Theatre is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
