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, 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!" Learn More

Go see this one! It is face-paced, fun... edgy and entertaining.... filled with clever dialogue. I can see this play going on to New York. My only two recommendations would be to "lose" the bathroom scene... too gross and not funny. Make better use of the big screens, which were a distraction with nothing happening on them. This was an early page to the stage performance.... so I would love to see it again as more multi-media is implemented. ☆☆☆ Yvonne ☆☆☆
After stewing for 70 years in political disgrace (and presumed death), Herbert Hoover takes the stage in an interactive, rock-infused concert, to reclaim his legacy and save America in the process. Elvis’ classic ‘68 Comeback Special serves as inspiration for Hoover’s rock n’ roll resurrection. This time around he’s going to successfully drag us out of our economic Waterloo, come hell or high water. Award winning company Les Freres Corbusier celebrates the checkered legacy of one of our most vilified presidents in this hilarious new concert performance piece.
