CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – Campbellsville University’s Theater Department and Town Hall Productions are presenting “Annie Get Your Gun” for five showings July 4-7 at CU’s Russ Mobley Theater in the Alumni Building at 114 University Drive, Campbellsville.

The show will be at 6 p.m. July 4; 7 p.m. July 5; 2:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. July 6 and 2:30 p.m. July 7. General admission is $10, but a special price of $7 will be offered from now until Sunday, June 16.

Seniors, military and CU faculty/staff (with ID) will be admitted for $7 and children 12 and under will be $5. You can make reservations by going to www.campbellsville.edu/theater or call (270) 789-5266.

Irving Berlin’s “Annie Get Your Gun” is presented at CU through special arrangement with R & H Theatricals. Peter Stone, Tony, Oscar and Emmy winner, has revised the production from the 1946 book by Herbert and Dorothy Fields.

The Wild West show-within-a-show frames the ageless “Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better” love story of sharpshooters Annie Oakley and Frank Butler.

Stone has added a secondary romance between the younger sister of Frank’s bothersome assistant Dolly and a boy who is (to Dolly’s horror) part native American.

Berlin’s score features hit after hit, and the New York Post said “Annie Get Your Gun” will “always be a musical for the ages, one of the Broadway theater’s enduring triumphs.”

Don Franklin Motors is sponsoring the production.

Campbellsville University is a widely acclaimed Kentucky-based Christian university with more than 3,600 students offering 63 undergraduate options, 17 master’s degrees, five postgraduate areas and eight pre-professional programs. The website for complete information is campbellsville.edu.
