There’s No Business Like Show Business
Annie Get Your Gun is a classic show stopper that is coming to Adelaide audiences very soon. With a cast & crew of over 100 people it's going to be a wonderful show. Tatachilla Lutheran College are presenting their 10th musical with Annie Get Your Gun, The 1999 revival version of Irving Berlin's classic musical. This musical has one of the greatest collections of songs in the history of musical theatre - including There's No Business Like Show Business and Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better. It will have audiences singing along to these timeless classics.
Annie Get Your Gun, not to be confused with the stage musical 'Annie' tells the story of Buffalo Bill's Wild West show that comes to town. It only takes one glance for sharp-shooting country girl Annie Oakley to fall head over heels for its star marksman, Frank Butler. Both have truly met their match, revealing their competitive natures as they vie for best shot - and each other's hearts.
The creative team that produced Seussical (nominated for best amateur musical 2007), Fiddler on the Roof, The Wizard of Oz, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, has pulled out all the stops for this special show to celebrate the College's 20th year. The stunning sets and costumes are in Wild West Steam Punk style (think Will Smith in Wild Wild West), and Mia Reschke (Annie) is a rising star with a beautiful voice.
This stage show boasts a live orchestra conducted by leading Adelaide Musical Director Mark DeLaine and professionally choreographed by Kasey Price of Dance Extreme. This is a wonderful good old-fashioned (except for the costumes) fun Broadway musical which will delight all the family.
