The Twilight Theatre is proud to be able to offer your one final chance to see, Annie Get Your Gun, the show everybody has been raving about.

“The rain may have forced us out last weekend,” said Twilight’s Managing Director, Jeanne Hewell-Chambers, “but this weekend there’ll be stars shining everywhere: on stage, backstage, in the booth, in the audience, and most especially in the sky.”

“Annie Get Your Gun” is the turn-of-the-century, true-life story of Annie Oakley and Frank Butler. This fun, fast-paced musical is full of dancing, shooting and recognizable music by the legendary Irving Berlin, all crafted around clever dialogue and a great love story.

Andre De Lorenzo, editor of the Southside ARTS Agenda said, “You have probably seen “Annie Get Your Gun” before, but you haven’t seen this group of awesome actors perform it…Go see it and be thoroughly entertained.”

It is a unique opportunity to be able to reschedule on such short notice, but The Twilight Theatre as well as all the cast, crew, musicians, and production staff are saying, “Lets go on with the show” and are busy pulling out all the stops to be able to offer an outstanding performance to the community just one last time.

“We are just a group of local citizens, using our talents to tell a story,” said Hewell-Chambers. “and we’d sure love to tell this story to an enthusiastic, appreciative audience. It’s always fun to see friends, bankers, coworkers, doctors – people you see and deal with on a daily basis – in a new context. Always amazing to see the talent they sometimes keep very well hidden. We sure do appreciate how the business community has rallied in support of us, helping us take to the stage one more time without breaking our piggy bank.”

Don’t miss your last chance to see what promises to be the most exciting, energetic performance yet. “Annie Get Your Gun” will be performed at the Frederick Brown Jr. Amphitheater on Saturday, Oct. 3 at 8 p.m. Gates open at 7:40 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $13 for students and can be purchased at the door beginning at 7:15 p.m.
