Jonathan Wilkes stars in a major new production of Irving Berlin’s Annie Get Your Gun
Jonathan Wilkes is set to star in a major new production of the Tony Award-winning version of Irving Berlin’s classic musical, Annie Get Your Gun.
Having performed on the musical theatre stage across the globe, Jonathan 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 twice Olivier nominated star Emma Williams as Annie Oakley and the much loved Norman Pace as Buffalo Bill.
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 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.”
Jonathan will be performing on 14th June in Stoke, 20th and 21st June in Edinburgh, 5th July in Birmingham, 15th-19th July in Bromley, 2nd August in Malvern, 16th August in Woking, 19th – 23rd August in Bournemouth and 17th September in Aberdeen.
