I’m back in Belfast in August to begin rehearsals on an exciting new production of Annie Get Your Gun. It’s an actor-musician adaptation, so I’m busy reworking the orchestrations for our multitalented cast. The production is produced Theatre At The Mill in Newtownabbey. It is directed by PETER CORRY.
Annie Oakley is the best shot around, and when Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show comes to town he persuades this novel sharpshooter to join his Wild West Show; it only takes one glance for Annie to fall head over heels for the dashing star of the show, shooting ace Frank Butler. She soon eclipses Butler as the main attraction and, nursing a bruised ego, he hightails it off to join a rival show, eventually to be 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. Features the all-time classic hits ‘There’s No Business Like Show Business’, ‘Doin’ What Comes Natur’lly’ and ‘Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better’.
The show opens 28th September 2015. For more information and booking visit http://www.theatreatthemill.com/PEO/show.asp.
