7:30 pm Annie Get Your Gun
Annie Get Your Gun
Aug 11 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Annie Oakley is the best shot around. 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. The rousing, sure-fire finale hits the mark every time in a testament to the power of female ingenuity. Show times are Wednesday-Saturday at 7:30p.m. and Sunday at 2p.m. Call 989-354-2267 for tickets.
