Cast members of the Broadway revival of Annie Get Your Gun, including Bernadette Peters, will take part in an April 26 education program designed to stimulate interest in the arts among New York, New Jersey and Connecticut students. At 10 AM, April 26, more than 1,500 school-age kids will descend upon the Marquis Theatre for an all-day primer on the arts. The day will end with the students attending the Wednesday matinee of Annie Get Your Gun. Just prior to that, Peters and other members of the musical's cast will lead the audience in a question and answer period. Meanwhile, mid-morning, performers will lead the youngsters in a performance of the Annie anthem, "There's No Business Like Show Business."
Annie Get Your Gun won a Tony Award at best revival of a musical. Peters won the best actress in a musical prize. It has been playing at the Marquis Theatre since March 1999.
