Irving Berlin's ANNIE GET YOUR tells the story of sharpshooter Annie Oakley (Alexandra Socha), who starred in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show, and her tempestuous romance with fellow sharpshooter Frank Butler (Matt Saldivar).
Acclaimed director Sarna Lapine brings a fresh, modern approach to the story, incorporating elements from Dorothy Fields' original book to create the strongest and most revolutionary Annie Oakley ever seen.
