This rollicking 1946 musical dramatizes the life of Annie Oakley, an American sharp-shooter from the turn of the century. Here we catch a glimpse of life in the wild west, as Annie is recruited into Buffalo Bill's Wild West show, where she meets and falls in love with her future husband, Frank Butler. With music and lyrics by Irving Berlin, this truly American show examines the life of a female renegade as her skills with a gun take her around the world, and, eventually, into the heart of the man she loves. Sure to be loved by audiences of every age, Annie's uncharacteristic toughness and sass are brought to life on the stage with classic style and an unmistakably western aesthetic.
