Western Nevada Musical Theatre Company

"Annie Get Your Gun" Plays February 8-17

Anything you can do, I can do better. Or, at least, Irving Berlin can. Annie Get Your Gun has been a blockbuster for more than 50 years, and Irving Berlin's show still knocks 'em flat, bringing one successful revival after another to the Great White Way.

Now the Western Nevada Musical Theatre Company brings the latest Tony Award-winning revival version of this Broadway favorite to the Carson City Community Center in seven performances, February 8 through 17.

The story of sharpshooter Annie Oakley falling in love with her rival, Frank Butler, is animated with non-stop hits: Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better, I Got the Sun in the Morning, They Say It's Wonderful, There's No Business Like Show Business and more.

The WNMTC production stars Lauren Durant as Annie Oakley and Joshua Jessup as Frank Butler. Dave Anderson is Buffalo Bill, Gordon Murray is Charlie Davenport, Jerry Lowe is Sitting Bull and Carla Wilson is Dolly Tate.
The revival version features additional Irving Berlin songs performed by new characters - Tommy and Winnie, played by Alex Kaskie and Whitney Giron. Forty singers and dancers round out the cast, accompanied by a live orchestra. Stephanie Arrigotti produces, conducts and directs and Gina Kaskie-Davis choreographs.

The show will run at the Carson City Community Center Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. There is also a matinee on Saturday, Feb. 16, at 2 p.m. Tickets: $18 for general admission, $16 for students and seniors, and $14 for youth 17 and under.

This is the first show of the 2008 season, which also includes "Damn Yankees" in May and "South Pacific" in November. Season tickets, which offer discounts and preferred seating, are also on sale at this time. Tickets and information: 775-445-4249.
Cutline: Lauren Durant as Annie Oakley and Joshua Jessup as Frank Butler.
