ANNIE GET YOUR GUN, Irving Berlin’s glorious wild west spectacle, celebrates the legendary sure-shot, Annie Oakley. Annie Get Your Gun is loosely based on the true story of renowned sharpshooter Annie Oakley and her tempestuous romance with gunslinger Frank Butler. The musical features countless standards, including “You Can’t Get a Man With a Gun,” “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” “I Got Lost in His Arms,” and “Anything You Can Do.” The original production, starring Ethel Merman, opened at the Imperial Theatre on May 16, 1946 and proved to be Berlin’s longest‐running Broadway show, playing 1147 performances. The 1999 revival attracted the talents of Bernadette Peters and Reba McEntire. Join us for one of Broadway's most loved musicals!

Monty Python’s Spamalot, the musical comedy sensation "lovingly ripped off" from the film classic Monty Python and The Holy Grail, leaps onto the Rollins stage this summer, spreading laughter and cheer throughout the kingdom. As gleefully silly yet wickedly smart as Monty Python, the beloved British comedy troupe that inspired it, Spamalot parodies the legend of King Arthur and his band of haphazard knights as they sing and dance their way through an inane divine quest, dodging giant wooden rabbits, obnoxious Frenchmen, and a death-defying limbless knight along the way. Don’t miss this madcap comedy of magic and mayhem!

Buy your tickets to A SHOE STORY! Why? Because it’s funny. Because it’s a musical. And because, heck, sometimes you need to turn off Netflix and just get out of the house. And besides, it is the only show in Austin that can guarantee sightings of A) Snarky-yet-lovable refugee elves who can rap using exclusively puns, B) Magical tap dancing shoe calculators and C) a shoemaker that can turn frisbees into work boots through the power of lounge singing! PLUS it's fun-for-all-ages. You can bring the grandparents, the kids, the neighbors, the gal that does your taxes - anyone! So, you might as well just pick a date, grab a friend and buy your tickets now. Created by Austin’s Biscuit Brothers, Allen Robertson and Damon Brown, this musical is the perfect summer family outing. Did we mention the rap battle/pun-off?
