Journey Theater Arts Group Presents Irving Berlin’s "Annie Get Your Gun"

Annie Oakley is the best shot around, and she manages to support her little brother and sisters by selling the game she hunts. When she's discovered by Col. Buffalo Bill, he persuades this novel sharpshooter to join his Wild West Show. 

It only takes one glance for her to fall head over heels for dashing shooting ace Frank Butler, who headlines the show. She soon eclipses Butler as the main attraction, which, while good for business, is bad for romance. Butler hightails it off to join a rival show, his bruised male ego leading the way, but is ultimately pitted against Annie in a final shoot-out.

Performances are at The Washburn Performing Arts Center, Washougal High School. May 24 – June 2. Fridays at 7 p.m., Saturday, May 25th at 7 p.m., Saturday, June 1st at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Pre-sale Adult tickets are $12. Youth, Senior and Group tickets are $9.
