About This Show

Annie Get Your Gun opened at the Imperial Theatre on May 16, 1946. It had been written specifically for Ethel Merman. Playwright Dorothy Fields had felt that casting Merman as Annie Oakley would guarantee a surefire hit. The story revolves around Annie Oakley, an illiterate hillbilly with a knack for shooting guns. Persuaded to join Buffalo Bill’s travelling Wild West Show, she soon falls hopelessly in love with Frank Butler, the show’s featured shooting ace. But when Annie eclipses Frank as the show’s main attraction, she realizes she’ll have to make some hard choices if she wants to win the man she loves. The New York production of Annie Get Your Gun ran for 1,147 performances and was the third longest running musical of the 1940s. It was the biggest Broadway hit of Merman’s career. In 1966, she returned to the role for a revival at Lincoln Center. The 1950 screen adaptation starred Betty Hutton and Howard Keel. The 1999 Broadway revival showcased Bernadette Peters. While she lacks Merman’s brass and crassness, Peters stands as the prettiest and sexiest Annie to date, not to mention probably the greatest singer of the bunch. The show was somewhat updated for modern times. Not only did Peter Stone make revisions to Herbert and Dorothy Fields’s original book (the story is now a show within a show, namely Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show), but there have been revisions to Berlin’s original score as well.

Stellar customer service! I appreciate the employee taking the time to show me the different brands of stage makeup. And I was very impressed and grateful for all her knowledge of application techniques”

They have such great costumes and extras for all your costume needs all year round.

They have a children’s section as well as extras for any existing costume you might have already, and need to renew our replace accessories. They also have a large selection of costumes for your organization, church or group and have all the up to date make up and wigs for every need you might have.

Overall I would say that most any item you might need quickly you would have available year round and not need to pay extra to have it delivered from an online source.
Staff have always been pleasant when or family visits as well as helpful.

Michelle S., Fremont, Ohio
