The concert production at London Palladium marks the 75th anniversary since the first West End production.
Irvin Berlin’s musical will head to the London Palladium for one performance only on the 1st June, with a cast led by Amber Davies as Annie Oakley, Julian Ovenden as Frank Butler and Trevor Dion Nicholas as Buffalo Bill.
When Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show 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, as the two compete and flirt, with plenty of ups and downs along the way.
Having opened on Broadway in 1946 and then in the West End a year later in 1947, Irvin Berlin’s musical includes memorable songs such as ‘There’s No Business Like Show Business’, ‘I Got Lost in His Arms’, ‘I Got the Sun in the Mornin’’, ‘Anything You Can Do,’ and ‘They Say It’s Wonderful’.
Talking about being part of this concert production, Amber Davies said: ” I am very excited to be taking to the stage of the magnificent London Palladium in this iconic role. Annie Oakley is a legend and I feel honoured to be part of such a special concert production celebrating the music of Annie Get Your Gun.”
Annie Get Your Gun is being presented by live music and event promoters Cuffe and Taylor in association with theatre producers Lambert Jackson Productions.
Lambert Jackson Creative Director Eliza Jackson said: “We are very excited to be bringing this brand-new concert production to the Palladium. Annie Get Your Gun is a classic that has been enjoyed by generations and the music and lyrics are both timeless and fun. We have a wonderful cast and we can’t wait to open the curtain on Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show.“
Annie Get Your Gun will be performed at the London Palladium on the 1st June 2022.
