West End and Broadway star Rachel Tucker will star as the legendary sharpshooter Annie Oakley alongside Julian Ovenden as Frank Butler in a special one-night only concert production of Irving Berlin’s classic musical Annie Get Your Gun at the iconic London Palladium on Friday 7th April 2023.
Rachel’s performance will mark her return to the West End after starring as Annette / Beverley Bass in Come From Away on Broadway, a role she originated in the London production.
When Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show comes to town, it only takes one glance for sharp-shooting country girl Annie Oakley to fall head over heels for its star marksman, Frank Butler. Both have truly met their match, as the two compete and flirt, with plenty of ups and downs along the way.
Celebrating this fictionalised version of the real-life sharp-shooter Annie Oakley and her romance with Frank Butler, Annie Get Your Gun boasts a score of Irving Berlin classics including ‘There’s No Business Like Show Business’, ‘I Got Lost In His Arms’, ‘I Got The Sun In The Mornin’, ‘Anything You Can Do,’ and ‘They Say It’s Wonderful’.
A concert production was staged in New York in 2015 but Annie Get Your Gun will be the first time a concert production has ever been staged in the UK.
Annie Get Your Gun at The London Palladium is presented by live music and event promoters Cuffe and Taylor and Live Nation, in association with theatre producers Lambert Jackson Productions.
