Lake Oswego’s prosperous Lakewood Theatre tackles the classic Broadway musical about unrefined sharpshooter Annie Oakley’s transformative adventures with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show. Directed by Ron Daum and performed by a handful of talented familiar faces,

Lakewood’s production delivers on all notes. Sara Catherine Wheatley’s shining performance as Annie is the apt highlight, carrying the charm of her innocently mischievous ways from the musical’s beginning to end, whether she’s hunting the bird on vindictive Dolly Tate’s (Stephanie Heuston) hat or covered in medals and wearing “oh day colog-neh water.”

The cast’s quality singing (directed by Alan D. Lytle) and dancing(choreography by Joel Walker, who also plays Tommy Keeler) ties it all together.
