It's the heartwarming 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 a champion for 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 solid roots of tradition. Should Annie's Place, passed down through the generations of women in Kat's family, become the newfangled Princess Café? Is the "out with the old, in with new" mentality the right one? Should princesses replace cowgirls? Or is there a way to unite the old and the new? Audiences help Annie, Kat, and her girls hold their own against svelte but smarmy villain Mable Q. Moneypots, and create a whole new family tradition.
