Auditions Set For ‘Annie Get Your Gun’

OSWEGO – Director Matthew Flemming announces open auditons for the Oswego Players’ production of “Annie Get Your Gun.”

Come audition on May 11 (2-4 p.m.) or May 13 (6-8 p.m.) at the Frances Marion Brown Theater, Civic Arts Center.

This production promises to be one of the highlights of the summer.

Bring sheet music of your choice or sing from the libretto of the show.

“Annie Get Your Gun” scored a bullseye when it returned to Broadway in 1999, starring Bernadette Peters and sporting a revised libretto by Tony, Oscar and Emmy winner Peter Stone.

As Newsday reported Stone’s revisions are sweetly ingenious, and the show is a dream. Stone reshaped the 1946 book to create a Wild West show-within-a-show that frames the ageless “Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better’ love story of sharpshooters Annie Oakley and Frank Butler.

Show Dates are as follows:
July 26, 27, 28 August 2, 3, 4.
