Buffalo Bill and Annie Oakley

Buffalo Bill was the flamboyant scout who put together his “Wild West and Congress of Rough Riders” toward the end of the nineteenth century.  But it was his discovery of Phoebe Moses, the little girl from Darke County, Ohio, who became Annie Oakley, the star of his show, that helped him take his show across America and before the kings and queens of Europe.  This program features the music of Irving Berlin’s “Annie, Get Your Gun” and actual photographs of the grounds, performers, and action from Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show.
