Tickets for Annie Get Your Gun

 

 

THE CENTENNIAL HIGH SCHOOL PERFORMING ARTS DEPARTMEMT PRESENTS THE MUSICAL COMEDY REVIVAL OF IRVING BERLIN’S

ANNIE GET YOUR GUN

BY PETER STONE.

 

Annie Get Your Gun scored a bulls-eye when it returned to Broadway in 1999, starring Bernadette Peters and sporting a revised libretto by Tony, Oscar and Emmy winner Peter Stone.  As Newsday reported, Stone’s revisions “are sweetly ingenious, and the show is a dream.”  Stone reshaped the 1946 book to create a Wild West show-within-a-show that frames the ageless “Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better” love story of sharpshooters Annie Oakley and Frank Butler.  Stone 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.  “The book has been updated in ways that pass p.c. muster,” reported Time Magazine, “without losing all the fun.”  Joined to the new book, of course, is that amazing Irving Berlin score, featuring hit after hit after hit.  “Irving Berlin’s greatest achievement in the theatre,” wrote the New York Post.  Annie Get Your Gun will always be a musical for the ages, one of Broadway theater’s enduring triumphs.”

 

This entertaining, family-friendly show features a terrific score, with memorable songs including “There’s No Business Like Show Business” and “Anything You Can Do.”  The music and lyrics by Irving Berlin and original book by Herbert and Dorothy Fields, as revised by Peter Stone, are sure to leave your toes tappin’.
