“A hilarious musical melodrama!” raves LA Parent. An Our Times “Best Bet!” It’s the heart-warming rhythm and boos musical comedy that offers great audience interaction as they boo the villain and cheer the heroine in the true spirit of the American Melodrama. Annie Oakley was an activist for equality and women's rights as far back as 1898! And now she’s back, coming to the aid of a single mom and her daughters struggling to find a balance between the bottom-line temptations of modern living and the comforting roots of tradition. Should Annie's Place, passed down through the generations of women in Kat's family, become the new-fangled, modernized Princess Café? That's exactly what wealthy land-owner Marvin Q. Moneypots wants! But is the "out with the old, in with new" Moneypots mentality the right one? Should Princesses replace Cowgirls? Or is there a way to unite the old and the new? Audiences ages 2 to 102 help Annie, Kat and her girls hold their own against smarmy villain Marvin Q. Moneypots, and create a whole new family tradition. Birthday and Tea Parties, hosted by one of the gaily costumed Playhouse actors are available in conjunction with every performance.

Based on a short story by Emery Bernauer, and written and directed by Chris DeCarlo & Evelyn Rudie with lyrics and music by E. Rudie, Annie Oakley and the Princess Café features Actors Repertory Theatre company members Tiffany Haile, Sarai Jimenez, Chelsey Maus, Cydne Moore, Elena Rust and Bradley Sharper. The production, one of 16 original fairy tales that are part of the Santa Monica Playhouse Family Theatre Musical Matinee Series, cuts across the imaginary generation gap by providing an experience that the entire family can enjoy. “Highly enjoyable.” (LA Times). Returns after its sell-out 2017 run!
