The Augusta Players presents Auditions for ‘Annie Get Your Gun’
March 16, 2018 @ 6:30 pm
ANNIE GET YOUR GUN
by Irving Berlin
With a heartwarming book by veteran librettists Dorothy and Herbert Fields and a flat-out brilliant score by Irving Berlin, Annie Get Your Gun was a smash hit when it opened in 1946 and has lifted the spirits of young and old ever since. The plot is classic musical comedy: a lighthearted, totally predictable, completely untrue, and thoroughly enjoyable telling of the love story of real-life sharpshooters Annie Oakley (1860-1926) and Frank Butler (1847-1926), set in the late 19th century world of Wild West-themed vaudeville which made Annie internationally famous. Plenty of laughs, more than a few wise insights into the age-old foibles of the human condition, and simply a ton of classic songs, including “Doin’ What Comes Natur’lly”, “You Can’t Get a Man With a Gun”, “Moonshine Lullabye”, “They Say It’s Wonderful”, “My Defenses Are Down”, “There’s No Business Like Show Business”, “I Got The Sun in The Morning”, and “Anything You Can Do”.
