The Catholic Youth Apostolate is pleased to announce that the Fr. William Scheid Players will close their 34th season with Annie Get Your Gun. The hit Broadway musical features legendary sharpshooter Annie Oakley, who ascends from dirty-faced backwoods gamin to the uppermost rungs of international stardom. Her mentor is Buffalo Bill, and Annie's great rival is arrogant marksman Frank Butler with whom she eventually falls in love. She experiences ups and downs in her romance with Frank but, in the end, love wins.
This year’s cast of 60 will feature several priests of the Archdiocese including Fr. Terry Borgerding of St. Ignatius of Loyola Parish in Marthasville, Monsignor John Borcic of St. Mary Magdalen Parish in St. Louis, Monsignor John Brennell of St. Monica Parish, Monsignor Norb Ernst of St. Margaret Mary of Alacoque Parish, and Fr. Bill Wigand, along with dozens of talented grade school, teenage and adult performers from around the St. Louis community.
This year marks the group’s 34th year of presenting Broadway plays, reviews, and musicals featuring Archdiocesan clergy and laity to raise funds for the youth programs of the Catholic Youth Apostolate.
