Gig Harbor High School

Gig Harbor High School Theater Department presents Irving Berlin’s musical, Annie Get Your Gun. The musical is a Wild West show-within-a-show narrating the story of Annie Oakley and her rival/beau, Frank Butler. The sardonic, feisty Oakley, a backwoods sharpshooter, is picked up by Buffalo Bill’s traveling variety act and quickly outshoots Butler, the current star attraction.
