Shoot-outs galore in Annie Oakley inspired play
PUBLISHED: 08:00 02 April 2015
THE Wild West is coming to Bath as Little Sure Shot makes its way into town.
The play is based on the true story of daredevil sharpshooter, Annie Oakley, played by Verity Kirk.
Annie Oakley’s father froze to death when she was just six years old and she taught herself to shoot at the age of seven.
At the age of 15 Annie paid off her mother’s mortgage with the proceeds of her victories in shooting competitions and at 21 years old she was the most famous female sharpshooter in the West.
The show explores the hardship Annie encountered when she was young and celebrates her achievements in the face of adversity.
The show comes complete with live country and western music and death-defying shoot-outs to entertain the crowd.
The play is at The Egg Theatre in Bath now until Saturday.
There will be performances at 11.30am and 3pm today (Thursday) and Saturday, and 2pm and 7pm tomorrow (Friday).
The play is for children aged seven or older and tickets, priced £10 for children and students or £12 for adults, are available from the theatre box office on 01225 448844 or online via www.theatreroyal.org.uk
