Harding University Presents Homecoming Musical “Annie Get Your Gun”

The Harding University theatre department will present its annual Homecoming musical Oct. 20-21 at 8 p.m. in Benson Auditorium. This year’s production is Irving Berlin’s “Annie Get Your Gun,” which is a fictionalization of the life of sharpshooter Annie Oakley.

The show follows backwoods gal Annie Oakley as she’s discovered by Buffalo Bill and joins his Wild West Show. She quickly meets her match in Frank Butler, the leading man and star marksman. Annie falls head over heels for Frank but soon eclipses him as the main attraction in the show. Her success with a gun makes trouble for Annie’s chance at romance.

“It’s an American classic that has been updated for a new generation of fans” said Department of Theatre Chair Steven Frye. “It’s Irving Berlin at his best, and it showcases the talent of Harding University students at their best!”   MORE
