Saddle up for a Wild West adventure! Annie Oakley is the best shot around, supporting her little brother and sisters by selling the game she hunts, but when she's discovered by Col. Buffalo Bill, he persuades her to join his Wild West Show. In a heartbeat, Annie falls in love with the show's veteran sharpshooter, Frank Butler, and soon eclipses him as the show's main attraction. Butler hightails it off to join a rival show, his bruised male ego leading the way, but is ultimately pitted against Annie in a final shoot-out. This rousing 1946 Broadway musical comedy features the classic Irving Berlin hits "Anything You Can Do," "Doin' What Comes Naturally" and "There's No Business Like Show Business!" Light Opera Works presents this fun family show with a full 28-piece pit orchestra. Learn More
