The local production will be performed from July 21-31 under the direction of directed by Wendy Ferrell. There are multiple roles for men, women and children. Based on the fictional ac- count of the colorful Annie Oakley (1860-1926) written by .brother and sister authors Herbert and Dorothy Fields, it was wildly successful as a play with its music and lyrics by Irving Berlin. "Annie Oakley is the best shot around, and she manag- es to support her little brother and sisters by selling the game she hunts," explained HCCT director Mike Rademaekers. "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 high- tails it offto join a rival show, his bruised male ego leading the way, but is ultimately pit- ted against Annie in a final shoot-out." "The rousing, sure-fire fi- nale hits the mark every time in a testament to the power of female ingenuity," said Rademaekers..
