Kellye Cash, who was crowned Miss Tennessee in 1986 and Miss America in 1987, will star as sharpshooter Annie Oakley in "Annie Get Your Gun," opening Friday, May 2, at the Cumberland County Playhouse in Crossville, Tenn.

Set to one of Irving Berlin's most famous scores, the musical contains such classics as "There's No Business Like Show Business," "Doin' What Comes Naturally," "You Can't Get a Man With a Gun," "They Say It's Wonderful," "My Defenses Are Down" and "Anything You Can Do."

Cash, a great-niece of the late Johnny Cash, plays the plucky backwoods gal whose astonishing shooting skills earn her a spot in Buffalo Bill's traveling show -- and spark a competition with the show's handsome headliner, Frank Butler (Britt Hancock). The two soon fall for each other, but when Annie's act outshines her beau's, she discovers that what's good for business can be bad for romance.

Bill Frey co-stars as Buffalo Bill, and the cast of colorful characters includes a host of Playhouse favorites, including Anna Baker, Daniel Black, DeAnna Etchison, Carol Irvin, Lauren Marshall, Leila Nelson, Austin Price, Jason Ross, Michael Ruff and Chaz Sanders. Weslie Webster directs this lighthearted tall tale.

"Annie Get Your Gun," which is rated G, runs through Friday, July 11. Also playing are "The Foreigner," which has been held over through Friday, May 16, and "The Diary of Anne Frank," through Thursday, May 22.
