LIMERICK Musical Society is back with its annual Spring production this April, taking aim at the classic musical Annie Get Your Gun.
Following on from the success of last year’s production of the Witches of Eastwick, the same artistic team of director Des Henn, AIMS winning choreographer Niamh Twomey and AIMS nominated musical director Máire KearyScanlon bring Irving Berlin’s classic musical to life at the University Concert Hall on April 28 – 30.
The story of Annie Oakley, who uses her crack shot abilities to support her younger siblings, is discovered by Buffalo Bill and meets her match in Frank Butler, boasts a score of Berlin's gems such as There’s no Business Like Show Business, I Got the Sun in the Mornin’ and Anything You Can Do.
A superb line up of local talent has been assembled including Hilary Orpen as Annie, Richie Hayes as Frank, Olivia Parkinson as Dolly Tate, Steven O’Brien as Buffalo Bill and many more.
Rehearsals began in January and the large chorus of nearly 70 people are now in the final stages of production and are ready to entertain Limerick audiences.
Boasting a large chorus who were rewarded with a ‘Best Chorus’ gong at the AIMS ceremony for their work last year, the show promises to be a fun filled, visual and musical spectacular for all the family.
Annie Gets Your Gun takes place in the UCH on April 28, 29 and 30 at 8pm. To book tickets, see www.uch.ie or call 061-331549.
