I enjoyed the performance very much.
Got good seats 3 rows from the front but in a side section.

We always enjoy Broadway-By-The-Bay productions, and this "Annie" was excellent, from the smallest cast member to the fine leads. The orchestra is always first rate, as are the stage direction and choreography. BBB is a Bay Area treasure!

More Information


When Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show comes into town, Annie Oakley quickly falls in love with the show’s sharpshooter, Frank Butler. Annie, an amazing sharpshooter herself, joins the show so she can win Frank’s heart. Annie soon realizes Frank is not interested in a tomboy, gun-toting dame—a woman who can beat him at his own game. Filled with familiar songs such as “Anything You Can Do,” “Doin’ What Comes Naturally” and “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” Annie Get Your Gun is ultimately about learning the true meaning of love.

Music and lyrics by Irving Berlin
