ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA – “There’s no business like show business!” Winthrop University’s Department of Theatre and Dance intends to prove that when it presents the beloved musical “Annie Get Your Gun” Feb. 13-16 at 8 p.m. and Feb. 17 at 2 p.m. in Johnson Theatre.

Theatre majors Sebastian Sowell and Sean Riehm, both from Irmo, South Carolina, star in the musical that is directed by Assistant Professor of Theatre Matt Ferrell and choreographed by Assistant Professor of Dance Kelly Ozust, with musical direction by Jeremy Mims, assistant professor of music.

“Annie Get Your Gun” scored a bullseye when it returned to Broadway in 1999, sporting a revised libretto by Tony, Oscar and Emmy winner Peter Stone. Stone reshaped the 1946 book to create a Wild West show-within-a-show that frames the ageless “Anything You Can Do (I Can Do Better)” love story of sharpshooters Annie and Frank.

This family-friendly show features the amazing and iconic Irving Berlin score, featuring hit after hit like “Anything You Can Do” and “There’s No Business Like Show Business.”

"Irving Berlin's greatest achievement in the theatre," wrote the New York Post. “‘Annie Get Your Gun’ will always be a musical for the ages, one of the Broadway theatre's enduring triumphs."

Tickets are $10 with a Winthrop ID and $15 for the general public. All tickets are for reserved seating. Tickets can be purchased online at www.winthrop.edu/cvpa/theatredance or at the door.
