Annie Get Your Gun Information
About the Show:
Annie Get Your Gun is a musical with a score by Irving Berlin (White Christmas, Call Me Madam) and a book by Dorothy and Herbert Fields. It presents a fictionalized story of the life and career of Annie Oakley (1860-1926), the famous female sharpshooter. It chronicles her family life, romance with Frank Butler, and career in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. Stand-out songs from the show include "You Can't Get a Man with a Gun," "I Got the Sun in the Mornin' (and the Moon at Night)," "There's No Business Like Show Business," and "Anything You Can Do."
The first Broadway production of Annie Get Your Gun was a success, opening on May 16, 1946 and running for 1,147 performances. Ethel Merman (Anything Goes, Gypsy) created the title role. Revivals followed in 1966, with Merman reprising her role, and 1999, starring Bernadette Peters (Song and Dance, Into the Woods). Notable replacements included soap star Susan Lucci, Cheryl Ladd (TV's Charlie's Angels), and country superstar Reba McEntire.

Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show is visiting Cincinnati, Ohio, and the star, womanizer Frank Butler, challenges all comers to match his shooting skill. Hotel owner Foster Wilson doesn't appreciate the show taking over his hotel, so Frank offers him a side bet of $100. Annie Oakley impresses Wilson with her spot-on sharpshooting, so he enters her into Butler's contest.
When Annie falls in love at first sight with a handsome stranger at the show, he tells her he wants a delicate, feminine woman, which saddens her. When the match starts and she discovers that the man is Frank Butler, she beats him at his own game. Buffalo Bill and Charlie Davenport, the show's manager, are so impressed that they invite Annie to join. Despite not knowing anything about show business, she agrees because she still loves Frank.
After a while working together, Frank starts to discover that he is falling for the tomboyish, straightforward Annie, so he tries to explain to her what love is. When they arrive in Minnesota and a rival show is in town, Annie agrees to do a daring shooting stunt to pull in business and impress Frank. When she pulls it off and becomes a star, Frank becomes frustrated and walks out on her and the show, giving up on his plan to propose to her.
After touring Europe as the star of Buffalo Bill's show, Annie becomes wiser and more refined, but she still longs for Frank. Meanwhile, Buffalo Bill and his competitor, Pawnee Bill, plan to merge their shows to save themselves financially, but they soon discover that neither has the money to finance the merger. Annie agrees to foot the bill by pawning her sharpshooting medals, deciding that the best things in life are free.
When Frank and Annie meet again, they confess their love and decide to marry until Annie shows Frank her medals and his pride is hurt once again. They call off the merger and the wedding until Annie proposes one more shoot-off. She lets Frank win to rebuild his pride, and the show and their marriage are saved.
