Anything you can sing (in the shower), the cast of Annie Get Your Gun can (probably) sing better.
You can't get a man with a gun, but at least there's no business like show business. The best things in life involve doin' what comes natur'lly, 'cause we got the sun in the mornin' and the moon at night.
You get the idea: The 1946 musical (revised in 1999) has more than a few recognizable Irving Berlin tunes.
At Spokane Civic Theater, director Yvonne A.K. Johnson's production (May 21-June 20) has a cast of more than 40 and features Tami Knoell as Annie Oakley, Patrick McHenry-Kroetch as Frank Butler, Doug Dawson as Buffalo Bill, Paul Villabrille as Sitting Bull, and Gary Pierce as Charlie Davenport.
