A current student and four alumni are performing in the Old Nick Company Theatre Summer School production, Annie Get Your Gun, currently being staged at the Mount Nelson Theatre.
They are Student Leader Phoebe McLean (Hobart Campus), Jaxen Bone, Alec Hastie and Adrian Reddish (GYC 2017) and Dan Prichard (GYC 2016). All the young thespians have featured in one or more of the past three GYC musical productions.
Annie Get Your Gun is a fast-paced show within a show, revolving around the lives of the company of a Wild West circus.
Based on the lives of incredible sharpshooters Annie Oakley and Frank Butler, this story presents an array of complex and lovable characters, with classic Broadway hits such as ‘Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better’ and the great theatrical anthem ‘There’s No Business Like Show Business’.
According to Dan, with an incredible ensemble of students aged 14-19 from across Hobart, this year’s Old Nick Company Theatre Summer School production should not be missed.
The season is currently open until this Saturday 3 March.

In the show, Alec performs in the role of Chief Sitting Bull, a fierce Sioux warrior and holy man who swears to protect Annie Oakley at all costs. Dan appears as Charlie Davenport, the flustered master of show business and manager of the Wild West show-within-a-show. Along with Phoebe, Jaxen and Adrian, they would love to see some of the GYC community enjoy a night of great entertainment.
