ANNIE GET YOUR GUN Auditions
Location: Largo, Florida
Eight O’Clock Theatre is holding auditions for Irving Berlin’s ANNIE GET YOUR GUN
Based on the true story of legendary sharpshooter Annie Oakley, this classic Western rags-to-riches musical shows the tenacity of the human spirit. When backwoods Annie is entered into a shooting match with the sharpshooting star of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, she falls head over heels in love. The womanizing Frank Butler can’t help but be charmed by the rough and naïve Annie. Despite hard luck, pride, and sabotage, Annie Triumphs and learns that, in fact, there’s no business like show business! This tuneful score boasts classics like They Say It’s Wonderful, I Got Lost in His Arms, You Can’t Get a Man With a Gun, I Got the Sun in the Morning, Anything You Can Do, and the rousing There’s No Business Like Show Business. Wrangle your kin for this whooping good time!
