Few can argue the legendary Annie Oakley’s place in history. Similarly, Annie Get Your Gun holds its own amongst the most beloved and entertaining musicals. Loosely based on the life of the iconic markswoman, the Menomonie Theater Guild is busy preparing their own spin on the show to open February 23 at the Mabel Tainter Center for the Arts. “As this is a production where the main topics include overcoming financial hardships and love that looks beyond appearance,” explains director Audric Buhr. “Anytime the audience can identify with the story and the struggles of characters in a production, the following will be there.” Filled with familiar showtunes such as Anything You Can Do and There’s No Business Like Show Business, Annie Get Your Gun runs Feb. 23-25 and March 1-3 at 7:30pm with 2pm performances Feb. 25-26 and March 3-4.
