Auditions will consist of three parts:

1) reading from the script - you will be given a script and told what part and what pages to prepare and then read that part for the director. You may be asked to do this for several different parts.

2) a song from the show - our accompanist will work with groups of people to learn a song from the show and then you will sing it for the director.

3) some simple choreography - our choreographer (or director) will teach you some steps and then you will perform them for the director.

ANNIE GET YOUR GUN scored a bulls eye 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.  Stone has added a secondary romance between the younger sister of Frank's bothersome assistant Dolly, and a boy who is (to Dolly's horror) part Native American.  "The book has been updated in ways that pass p.c. muster," reported Time Magazine, "without losing all the fun."  Joined to the new book, of course, is that amazing Irving Berlin score, featuring hit after hit after hit.  "Irving Berlin's greatest achievement in the theater," wrote the New York Post, ANNIE GET YOUR GUN  "will always be a musical for the ages, one of the Broadway theater's enduring triumphs."

We will be doing the Peter Stone revised version. This great Irving Berlin musical includes such well known songs as: "There's No Business Like Show Business", "Doin' What Comes Natur'lly", "I Got the Sun in the Morning", "Anything You Can Do (I can do better)" and many more.

The cast will include 3 principal women and 5 principal men, with additional featured parts for 1 woman, 2 men, 2 girls and 1 boy. There is also a singing & dancing ensemble that includes several small roles.
