Sheffield Theatres have announced casting for Paul Foster’s new revival of Irving Berlin’s Annie Get Your Gun.
Sharp shootin’, smart talkin’ Annie Oakley is a force to be reckoned with. But when she’s pitched against the charming, fiercely competitive Frank Butler, has she finally met her match?
Anna-Jane Casey stars as Annie Oakley and Ben Lewis as Frank Butler, with Nicolas Colicos (Buffalo Bill), Mike Denman (Pawnee Bill), Lauren Hall (Winnie Tate), Matthew Malthouse (Foster Wilson), Timothy Quinlan (Charlie Davenport), Cleve September (Tommy Keeler), Maggie Service (Dolly Tate), Karl Seth (Chief Sitting Bull), and completing the ensemble, Josh Andrews, Ronan Burns, Emma Caffrey, Matthew Croke, Omari Douglas, Rosie Fletcher, Melissa James, Jasmine Kerr, Natasha Mould, Jak Skelly, Leah West and Emma Woods (ensemble and Dance Captain).
Originally written for Broadway legend Ethel Merman, Irving Berlin’s score is considered a classic, featuring songs including There’s No Business Like Show Business, Anything You Can Do, and I Got The Sun In The Morning.
Annie Get your Gun will feature choreography by Alastair David, designed by Laura Hopkins, musical direction by Paul Herbert, lighting design by Natasha Chivers, and sound design by Nick Lidster.
Annie Get Your Gun will play at Sheffield Theatre from 8 December 2016 until 14 January 2017.
