Brigham’s Playhouse hits the target with sharpshooting musical classic “Annie Get Your Gun”
Brigham’s Playhouse, a Southern Utah leader in live theater, is delighted to announce their next production. “Annie Get Your Gun” will show April 20 through May 27 in their intimate, indoor theater in Washington. Come one, come all to to Irving Berlin’s Broadway musical classic of sharp-shooting romance and show business!
Annie Oakley is the best shot around as she manages to support her little brother and sisters by selling the game she hunts. When she’s discovered by Col. Buffalo Bill, he persuades this novel sharpshooter to join his Wild West Show. It only takes one glance for her to fall head over heels for dashing shooting ace Frank Butler, who headlines the show. She soon eclipses Butler as the main attraction which, while good for business, is bad for romance. Butler hightails it off to join a rival show, his bruised male ego leading the way, but is ultimately pitted against Annie in a final shoot-out. The rousing, sure-fire finale hits the mark every time in a testament to the power of female ingenuity.
These two show business rivals, Annie Oakley and Frank Butler, do what comes naturally as they fall in love to timeless songs, such as Can’t Get a Man with a Gun, Anything You Can do (I Can do Better).
Performances run Thursday through Saturday at 7 pm, with a matinee performance at 2 pm on Saturdays. Tickets are available on their website, www.brighamsplayhouse.com, or by visiting or calling their Playhouse box office.
