The producers of the recent Barbican production of South Pacific and the Sadlers Wells production of West Side Story present a major new production of this Tony Award-winning version of Irving Berlin’s classic musical, Annie Get Your Gun, starring Emma Williams as Annie Oakley, Jonathan Wilkes as Frank Butler and Norman Pace as Buffalo Bill.
A star of stage and screen, and having performed on the musical theatre stage across the globe, Jonathan Wilkes has appeared in hit musicals including Godspell, The Rocky Horror Show UK Tour, Grease, Guys and Dolls, The Wedding Singer, We Will Rock You UK Tour and Chicago. Now he will appear as Frank Butler in this new version of the classic Broadway smash hit. Jonathan is joined by Emma Williams as Annie Oakley. Emma is the twice Olivier nominated star of Chitty, Chitty, Bang Bang and Love Story. Her other credits include Sunset Boulevard and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Jonathan and Emma will be joined by the much loved Norman Pace as Buffalo Bill, who most recently starred the West End production of Chicago.
With timeless classic songs including There’s No Business Like Show Business and Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better, Annie Get Your Gun tells the legendary story of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West female sharpshooter, Annie Oakley and her romance with fellow sharpshooter, Frank Butler. 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, revealing their competitive natures as they vie for best shot – and each other’s hearts.
Jonathan Wilkes said; “I’ve been lucky enough to play some great roles on stage so far in my career, but now having the chance to star as Frank Butler as part of the UK premiere production of this award winning version of such a classic musical is truly thrilling. I’m very much looking forward to performing such brilliant songs and appearing alongside Emma and Norman, as well as the rest of the talented cast.”
