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.
