THE CENTENNIAL HIGH SCHOOL PERFORMING ARTS DEPARTMENT PRESENTS THE MUSICAL COMEDY REVIVAL OF IRVING BERLIN’S ANNIE GET YOUR GUN BY PETER STONE

Centennial High School’s Performing Arts Department re-creates the true story of Annie Oakley, the World’s Greatest Sharpshooter, in the CHS Auditorium in Gresham. The wild-west’s favorite love story comes to Gresham when Centennial High School presents Annie Get Your Gun, a song-and dance-filled stage adaptation of the original Irving Berlin classic. Annie Get Your Gun opens April 30th and runs through May 9th. Annie Get Your Gun scored a bulls-eye when it returned to Broadway in 1999, starring Bernadette Peters and sporting a revised libretto by Tony, Oscar and Emmy winner Peter Stone. As Newsday reported, Stone’s revisions “are sweetly ingenious, and the show is a dream.” 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 Oakley and Frank Butler. Stone added a secondary romance between the younger sister of Frank’s bothersome assistant Dolly, and a boy who is (to Dolly’s horror) part Native American. “The book has been updated in ways that pass p.c. muster,” reported Time Magazine, “without losing all the fun.” Joined to the new book, of course, is that amazing Irving Berlin score, featuring hit after hit after hit “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 Broadway theater’s enduring triumphs. This entertaining, family-friendly show features a terrific score, with memorable songs including “There’s No Business Like Show Business” and “Anything You Can Do.” The music and lyrics by Irving Berlin and original book by Herbert and Dorothy Fields, as revised by Peter Stone, are sure to leave your toes tappin’ For Centennial High School’s production, Kellie McCarty directs, Sharon V. Miller choreographs, and Rebecca Chelson is vocal director. The 32-member cast features Junior, Zachary Alleger as Frank; Junior, Natalie Hurley as Annie; Senior, David Miller as Charlie; and Senior, Brooke Larson as Dolly, Frank’s Assistant. Annie Get Your Gun performs at the Centennial High School Auditorium, 3505 SE 182nd Avenue, Gresham, OR 97030. Tickets are reserved and are $10 for adults and $8 for Students and Senior Citizens.

Annie Get Your Gun opens April 30th and runs through May 9th. Annie Get Your Gun scored a bulls-eye when it returned to Broadway in 1999, starring Bernadette Peters and sporting a revised libretto by Tony, Oscar and Emmy winner Peter Stone. As Newsday reported, Stone’s revisions “are sweetly ingenious, and the show is a dream.” 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 Oakley and Frank Butler. Stone added a secondary romance between the younger sister of Frank’s bothersome assistant Dolly, and a boy who is (to Dolly’s horror) part Native American. “The book has been updated in ways that pass p.c. muster,” reported Time Magazine, “without losing all the fun.” Joined to the new book, of course, is that amazing Irving Berlin score, featuring hit after hit after hit “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 Broadway theater’s enduring triumphs. This entertaining, family-friendly show features a terrific score, with memorable songs including “There’s No Business Like Show Business” and “Anything You Can Do.” The music and lyrics by Irving Berlin and original book by Herbert and Dorothy Fields, as revised by Peter Stone, are sure to leave your toes tappin’ For Centennial High School’s production, Kellie McCarty directs, Sharon V. Miller choreographs, and Rebecca Chelson is vocal director.

Shop for teddy bears, sweaters, scarves, & other alpaca products, many hand-crafted. Hand-spinners, knitters, & other fiber artists will find fleece and yarn. Many of the yarns are in one of the alpacas’ natural colors, spun from the fleece of a single animal. Bring your camera and get a shot of the alpaca who provided the raw material for your next project. Visitors can chat with four long-time livestock breeders who've raised llamas, horses, sheep, and goats.

Both farms offer alpacas for sale along with boarding options. We'll be open Saturday & Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. 21345 SW Aebischer Rd, Sherwood - just off Hwy 99.
