Cohn) is stunned at the shooting prowess of Annie Oakley (Christine Ashbaugh) during a Hill Country Community Theatre performance of Irving Berlin’s “Annie Get Your Gun.” The real Annie Oakley was an empowering figure for American women who, during her heyday, earned more than anyone else in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West except Buffalo Bill Cody himself.
