Hilty plays sharpshooter Annie Oakley, the role originated on Broadway by Ethel Merman. Directed by Tony Award winner John Rando, the concerts feature The Encores! Orchestra led by Encores! music director Rob Berman.

Hilty earned acclaim for headlining the 2012 Encores! production of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. She was the star of the one-night-only Broadway concert of the fictional "Smash" musical Bombshell, recreating a role she played in the "Smash" TV series. Her stage appearances also include Wicked and 9 to 5. On screen, she's appeared in "Sean Saves the World" and the upcoming "Untitled Warren Beatty Project," scheduled for release in 2016.

Karl plays leading man Frank Butler, with Cooper as Pawnee Bill, Kaye as Dolly Tate, Oscar as Charlie and Raines as Buffalo Bill.

Annie Get Your Gun has music and lyrics by Berlin and a book by Herbert and Dorothy Fields. The musical is loosely based on the story of sharpshooter Annie Oakley and her tempestuous romance with gunslinger Frank Butler.

The score includes "You Can't Get a Man With a Gun," "I Got Lost in His Arms" and "Anything You Can Do." The original production starred Merman as Annie Oakley.

The concert's ensemble includes Ward Billeisen, Sam Bolen, Laura D'Andre, Nicolas Dávila, Christine DiGiallonardo, Leah Horowitz, Miles Johnson, Andrea Jones-Sojola, Amy Justman, Patricia Noonan, Daniel Schwait and Nicholas Ward.
