Editor’s note: The following press release was delivered by rider on horseback, wrapped in a leather folio with the postmark “North Platte, Nebraska.”
Well ‘tis yer old buddy Buffalo Bill reachin’ out to ya again with good news. And I’m wantin’ ta tell all you youngins ‘bout my big plans for our show, “Annie Get Your Gun.” It’s a-comin’ the end of July to Oswego and we’re fixin’ to make it a little easier on the pocketbook ta bring the whole clan to see the show.
Now listen up good, ya hear me! Ya all need to know a thing or two about me and my big show when I was a fixin’ to put this dang thing on the road. Back then in ’95 — that’s 1895 — when I booked Oswego for my “Buffalo Bill’s Wild West and Congress of Rough Riders of the World” show, this here extravaganza had sharp-shootin’, hunts, racin’ and rodeo performers. An a-course Annie Oakley was one of them here stars that everyone loved.
Well, Annie’s comin’ back to town July 26, 27, 28 and Aug. 2, 3, 4 with her life story to tell in song and dance. She’ll be singin’ and dancin’ with her show folk on the Frances Marion Brown Stage and we want you all to be able to come see her.
And a-nother thing… you can catch up performin’ during HarborFest that first round of dates, so we’re fixin’ to have a 2 p.m. show on July 27. Come on over for the show, tie up yer horse and buggy, and stay around for the Fireworks that evenin’. What a deal!
So, anyway, I got ahead of myself partner. I told my crew to get the good word out there that we was fixin’ to celebrate music, kids and families this time round with a special ticket price for youngins. We be wantin’ to get them young families with kiddos at home in ta see a toe tappin’ live show. Maybe some for the first time. Mighty sad to miss out on this one, I’d say.
Getting’ a ticket ain’t never been easier these days with all these new fangled gadgets. Just dial us on up at 315-343-5138 and make yer claim, or if yer into those new fangled devices, type in oswegoplayers.org and punch in the numbers right there. Now were fixin to have big crowds, so don’t be dilly dallin around, here me.
I’ll be keepin ya posted on things as they shape up with the show. So keep them eyes and ears ready for more news. Hear me, now!
