Annie Get Your Gun

The VCS spring musical was "Annie Get Your Gun". These students took the audience back to the days of the wild west and introduced them to characters like Sitting Bull and Annie Oakley. Surprisingly, Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show really did travel through Vienna in the past, performing for Emperor Franz Josef and his court in Prater Park.

Here's Frank Butler, one of the greatest shooters in the West! The costumes were amazing and helped bring the show to life.

A 12-member pit band played the music for the show. I had the best part - hitting the snare drum to make the gunshot sounds in the shooting matches! I also turned pages for Sandi at the piano.
