Musical Direction by Joel Waggoner
Choreography by Jeffrey Page
Directed by Julianne Boyd

August 13 – September 4

Inspired by the exploitation movies of the 1970s (think Shaft or Enter the Dragon), this exciting new musical follows 60-ish-year-old, unemployed actor Annie (starring Annie Golden as herself) as she’s asked to become a bounty hunter and capture a South American drug lord. With a score rich with R&B and Funk (and a splash of ‘80s Rock ‘n’ Roll), the musical follows a woman of a certain age as she tries to find the inner strength she needs to save theatre and realize her true badass identity. Pure, unadulterated fun.
