Theater Review: 'Doin' what comes natur'lly' at Pa. Playhouse

Wednesday, July 30, 2014 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

There's no theater like community theater.

For a wonderful example, see "Annie Get Your Gun," a good-hearted, energetic production of the classic musical-comedy, weekends through Aug. 10, Pennsylvania Playhouse, Bethlehem.

Mark Breiner directs the large, and refreshingly young, cast, outfitted lavishly and with colorful variety by costume designer Cathy Scharf in cowboy hats, boots, fringed cowboy shirts, Native American outfits, barker suits, and tuxedoes and gowns (Annie Oakley's getups get better and better as the show progresses).
