The iconic London Palladium is set to host a special one-night-only concert of the classic musical Annie Get Your Gun on April 7th. Starring West End and Broadway favorite Rachel Tucker as the legendary sharpshooter Annie Oakley and Julian Ovenden as love interest Frank Butler, the cast will be joined by the talented Matt Henry, who will play the legendary showman Buffalo Bill.
Matt Henry is best known for his award-winning performance as Lola in the original West End production of “Kinky Boots”. He has recently appeared in the hit movie “Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical” and co-created and starred in the new musical “The Drifters Girl”.
The cast will also feature Nicholas McLean as Charlie Davenport, Olivia Moore as Winnie Tate, Charlotte Riby as Dolly Tate, and Jay Rincon as Tommy Keeler. Rachel’s performance as Annie Oakley marks her return to the West End after starring as Annette / Beverley Bass in “Come From Away” on Broadway.
In the musical, sharp-shooting country girl Annie Oakley falls head over heels for the star marksman of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, Frank Butler. The two compete and flirt, with plenty of ups and downs along the way. The musical 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”.
The concert production of “Annie Get Your Gun” is presented by live music and event promoters Cuffe and Taylor and Live Nation, in association with theatre producers Lambert Jackson Productions. It will be a night celebrating a classic musical full of memorable show tunes, with a full orchestra accompanying the talented cast.
