Annie Get Your Gun “ “Annie Get Your Gun” Is A Rip Roarin' Fun Musical For The Whole Family!”

THE GEEK AUTHORITY - By Lorenzo Marchessi

Premiering on Broadway in 1946 for the first time with the original show stopper herself – Ethel Merman. Glendale Center Theatre does it again with a rip-roaring fun revival of “Annie Get Your Gun”! It's a musical with lyrics and music by Irving Berlin and a book by Dorothy Fields and her brother Herbert Fields. The story is a richly fictionalized version of the life of the real Annie Oakley (1860–1926), a sharpshooter from the Ol' West who starred in the real Buffalo Bill's Wild West shows, and her almost hap-hazard romance with sharpshooter Frank E. Butler (1847–1926).

Director Tim Dietlein did, once again, two things well – he cast the show with talented performances and allowed the story to unfold in a very fun, musical and visual way that young and old will adore. The music is fun, the dance is broad and the story is full of moments of laughter and heartwarming relationships.

Victoria Strong is Annie Oakley and she has an amazing voice and was channeling innocence, the Ol' West, and the smarts of a woman who has been raising her brothers and sisters with compassion and heart. Her amazing sense of humor and timing along with the fantastic talent of song and dance will make you both laugh out loud and sing along. She will surprise and just crack you up when she sings songs like "Doin' What Comes Natur'lly" and "You Can't Get a Man with a Gun". Her song "They Say It's Wonderful" was such a wonderful sentiment of this character's inner desire and Victoria was amazing performing it.

Much as I wish there were an Annie Get Your Gun that preserved the charms (and full cast of characters) of the Broadway original minus its arguably offensive stereotypes, I can't fault Glendale Centre Theatre's execution of this true American classic. GCT's Annie Get Your Gun is an entertaining musical theater-in-the-round treat. It just needs some 21st-century attitude adjustment.
