A new comedy by Wade Dooley
Directed by Scott Schwartz (Bay Street Theater’s Artistic Director)
THE PROMPTER is a new comedy about veteran actress Irene Young, who, after a forty-year absence, is returning to the Broadway stage. But now, she can’t do it alone; so, the production hires a young actor to be her prompter. But, this isn’t her story, it’s his. Based on real events, THE PROMPTER is a funny, heartfelt, untold, behind-the-scenes look at Broadway through the eyes of a young dreamer.

BAY STREET THEATER
A new vision of the classic musical. July 30 – August 25 Music & Lyrics by Irving Berlin Book by Herbert & Dorothy Fields Directed by Sarna Lapine (Sunday in the Park with George, Bay Street’s Frost/Nixon)
Irving Berlin’s ANNIE GET YOUR GUN is one of most beloved musicals of Broadway’s Golden Age. It tells the story of sharpshooter Annie Oakley, who starred in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, and her tempestuous romance with fellow sharpshooter Frank Butler.  Acclaimed director Sarna Lapine will bring a fresh, modern approach to the story, incorporating elements from Dorothy Fields’ original book to create the strongest and most revolutionary Annie Oakley you’ve ever seen.  This musical includes such beloved songs as There’s No Business Like Show Business, Anything You Can Do, and I Got Sun in the Morning which will be performed by a country western, bluegrass band.
