Annie Get Your Gun show a gun-slingin' wild west adventure
IT'LL be gun-slingin' fun at the Yeppoon Town Hall for the next two weekends as the Yeppoon Choral Society's production of Annie Get Your Gun hits the stage.
The show this year is being produced by husband and wife team Travis and Amanda Hock, who have seven years experience working together on stage.
However, this will be their first time producing a show together and they're enjoying working on this community project.
"It's wonderful to see the community and family spirit within this company," Amanda said.
"They work so hard and have absorbed all of the information we have given them, and as a production team that is all you ask for."
Annie Get Your Gun is a fun, family show that is a fictionalised version of the life of Annie Oakley, one of the greatest sharp-shooters in the west.
Annie and her family get involved in Buffalo Bill's Wild West show after Annie challenges Frank Butler (best shooter in the west) to a shooting match.
After much disagreement, Frank allows Annie to come on tour. Sparks fly, arguments happen, proposals are made and promises are broken in this rollercoaster of a show.
Local performers Emma McGuire and Jacob Goves are tackling the roles of Annie and Frank.
Emma brings sunshine and laughter while Jacob brings his velvet vocals to the stage.
Other familiar performers in the show are local YCS president Don Knowles as Buffalo Bill, Mark Boyd as Charlie Davenport, and Rockhampton performer Austin Burrows as Tommy Keeler.
Rehearsals have been taking place since April and the show is sure to provide the polish and entertainment that audiences have come to expect from each YCS production.
Tickets are available outside Yeppoon Chemmart Pharmacy or the Emu Park Post Office, or head online to trybooking.com.
