ANNIE OAKLEY  “AIM FOR A HIGH MARK"
Wednesday, October 28, 2:00 P.M.
Annie Oakley was one the most famous women of her day. The petite sharpshooter competed in a sport dominated by men. Kim Hanley portrays Annie and is eager to share her inspiring life story. Like Oakley, Hanley has created her own costume, and can ride and shoot. And like Oakley, Hanley is committed to family, education, and philanthropic causes. Annie Oakley: Aim for a High Mark is portrayed by Kim Hanley and produced by the American Historical Theatre.
