There’s no business like show busness like no business I know.
— Irving Berlin


Annie Oakley is the best shot around, and 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.

With timeless hits like "There's No Business Like Show Business," "Anything You Can Do," and "Doin' What Comes Natur'lly," Irving Berlin's iconic score bubbles with melodic optimism and classic Broadway tunes.

Our production will feature the original 1946 symphonic orchestrations by the one and only Robert Russell Bennett.


Join Annie Oakley, Frank Butler, Colonel Buffalo Bill, and the rest of the Wild West gang as we fall in love with this iconic show all over again!
