ANNIE GET YOUR GUN Comes to The Renaissance Center Stage
The Renaissance Players are proud to present ANNIE GET YOUR GUN on the Renaissance Center stage! This classic musical is being directed by Rachel Jackson and runs from September 27 - October 6, 2019. Come out and relive the days of sharpshooters and cowboys in this fictionalized musical version of the real Annie Oakley's story.
Annie Oakley is the best shot around, and, while struggling to care for her brother and sisters, she gains the attention of Col. Buffalo Bill. He convinces her to join his Wild West Show, and Annie soon falls head-over-heels for Frank Butler, the current headliner. Annie surpasses Frank as the main attraction, and, with his ego bruised, Frank leaves for a rival show. Fate brings Annie and Frank together again for a final shoot-out that makes for a powerful finale!
"Annie Get Your Gun is a timeless story of a girl with big talent and an even bigger heart. I've loved getting to shape this story with our talented cast, and I believe our audiences will instantly be pulled in by Annie's relatability. There can never be enough stories about women who pioneered their way to the top of their field, and Annie is a prime example," says director Rachel Jackson. "I couldn't have asked for a more well-rounded cast and crew for this process. From the music and choreography, to the actors all making each moment their own, they have all truly bought into this incredible story. Come on this journey with us and watch Annie Oakley find true friendship, true love, and most importantly - herself."
This show is set to the immortal music of Irving Berlin and contains musical classics like "There's No Business Like Show Business," "You Can't Get a Man With a Gun," and "Anything You Can Do." Annie Get Your Gun is considered a classic golden-age musical, and the whole family will surely enjoy every moment!
