JAMES BEAMAN WILL PLAY CHARLIE DAVENPORT IN "ANNIE GET YOUR GUN" AT GOODSPEED OPERA HOUSE
April 16 through June 27, 2010
I am thrilled to announce that I will be making my debut with Goodspeed Musicals this spring in Irving Berlin's classic "Annie Get Your Gun." I have long wanted to work at this prestigious theatre and I am really delighted to be playing Charlie Davenport, the manager of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show (if you've seen the movie with Betty Hutton, Charlie was played by Keenan Wynn). The production will be directed by Rob Ruggiero, who has directed several productions at the theatre and is at the helm of the new Broadway comedy, "Looped," starring Valerie Harper as Tallulah Bankhead. Jenn Gambatese, who has played leading roles on Broadway in "Tarzan," "Hairspray," and "All Shook Up," will play Annie Oakley.
Stay tuned for more information on the production, cast, and other news!
