Summer Stock Austin presents ANNIE GET YOUR GUN, August 2 – 12 in the Rollins Studio Theatre.
ANNIE GET YOUR GUN, Irving Berlin’s glorious wild west spectacle, celebrates the legendary sure-shot, Annie Oakley. ANNIE GET YOUR GUN is loosely based on the true story of renowned sharpshooter Annie Oakley and her tempestuous romance with gunslinger Frank Butler. The musical features countless standards, including “You Can’t Get a Man With a Gun,” “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” “I Got Lost in His Arms,” and “Anything You Can Do.” The original production, starring Ethel Merman, opened at the imperial Theatre on May 16, 1946 and proved to be Berlin’s longest-running Broadway show, playing 1147 performances. The 1999 revival attracted the talents of Bernadette Peters and Reba McEntire. Join us for one of Broadway’s most loved musicals!
