The cast includes SuRie (singer-songwriter) as Annie Oakley, Charlie McCullagh (Bonnie & Clyde, Dr. Zhivago, 42 Balloons) as Frank Butler and Chlöe Hart (Catherine of Aragon in the national tour of Six, Evita, Kinky Boots) as Dolly Tate. The full company is detailed in this Broadway World article.

Featuring a glittering score of Irving Berlin’s best-loved songs, Annie Get Your Gun proves ‘There's No Business Like Show Business’ in all-singing, all-dancing, gun-toting glory!

Director/choreographer Simon Hardwick will bring the story to life with a raw and kinetic staging evoking the energy of Buffalo Bill's original touring celebrations of the Wild West.

Emily Fletcher, granddaughter of Irving Berlin, expressed her delight about this upcoming production:

"I'm thrilled that, as part of the 135th celebrations of my grandfather's birthday, there is a new cast announced for the latest UK production of Annie Get Your Gun! It is wonderful that theatres around the world keep his legacy alive through reviving his iconic characters and timeless songs.”

As a student, Elliot performed in multiple conservatoire productions including Company, Evita, Merrily We Roll Along and Chess. In the video below, Elliot sings Kansley and Lidert’s ‘Whatever Comes’ as part of Leeds Conservatoire’s Aftershow Sessions.
