The Burns Park Players have just finished their penultimate performance of this year’s show, Annie Get Your Gun. Last Friday, I caught opening night with Rico and my in-laws. Roger LeLievre wasn’t exactly tightfisted with the praise in his glowing review for the Ann Arbor News. Tomorrow, we’re taking Max to the 4pm matinee. He’s already pretty familiar with the show, having twice visited Tappan during the rehearsal/set-building phase (and inveigled his way into various crew jobs). Also, we’ve been singing several of the songs pretty much non-stop (tonight’s lullaby was “You Can’t Get a Man with a Gun” in two-part harmony).

Congratulations to the entire cast and crew!

Hello Myra, I was the designer of Annie Get Your Gun and I was hoping I could get some photos of the set from you if possible. I am putting a portfolio together and would love some of your beautiful photos to be in it. The photos are truly wonderful, you are very good at what you do. Thanks.
