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.
