Saddle up for a Wild West adventure! Ride along with Annie Oakley, a backwoods gal with a sure-shot and quick wit, as she challenges dashing marksman Frank Butler to be the star of Buffalo Bill's traveling show. Sparks fly faster than bullets as the competition and romance heat up. Featuring some of Broadway's greatest songs: "There's No Business Like Show Business," "Anything You Can Do," " I Got The Sun In The Morning," and "You Can't Get A Man With A Gun." This Irving Berlin classic hits the bulls-eye every time!
