Winner of the 1972 Tony Award for Best Original Score, Andrew Lloyd Webber's Jesus Christ Superstar changed the face of musical theater when it debuted on Broadway in 1971. A rock 'n' roll retelling of the last seven days in the life of Jesus of Nazareth, Superstar dramatizes his entry into Jerusalem, the unrest caused by his message and his popularity, his betrayal by Judas Iscariot, his trial before Pontius Pilate, and his ultimate crucifixion. Chart-topping songs such as "Superstar," "Everything's Alright" and "I Don't Know How to Love Him" dramatically highlight the struggles of those final days. Learn More
Saratoga Drama Group presents the hoop-hollerin' musical adventure, Annie Get Your Gun, directed by Lee Garay Toney. Annie Get Your Gun is the highly fictionalized story of Annie Oakley, one of the world's most famous sharpshooters. The story celebrates Annie's stormy, competitive relationship with Frank Butler, a dashing vaudeville marksman, as they tour the country as the stars of "Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. Karen DeHart plays the role of Annie Oakley and Tim Reynolds as Frank Butler.
Annie Oakley is the best shot around and when she's discovered by Col. Buffalo Bill, he persuades her to join his Wild West Show. It only takes one glance for her to fall head over heels for 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 but is ultimately pitted against Annie in a final shoot-out.
The score is generally considered Irving Berlin's best and contains the songs, "There's No Business, Like Show Business," "The Girl That I Marry," and "Anything You Can Do (I Can Do Better)."
