Performers hit Wimbledon Piazza on Tuesday for a Wild West Fun Day event ahead of a country musical's arrival at the New Wimbledon Theatre next month.

Starring Jason Donovan, Emma Williams and Norman Pace, the award-winning version of Irving Berlin's classical musical Annie Get Your Gun will run from Tuesday, September 9, to Saturday, September 13.

Hundreds of people turned out for the preview in Wimbledon Piazza to watch the star cast perform three songs, including 'There's No Business Like Show Business'.

A Wild West shoot out, cactus hoopla and a bunking bronco also drew in the crowds.

Annie Get Your Gun tells the story of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West female sharpshooter, Annie Oakley and her romance with fellow sharpshooter, Frank Butler.

When Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show comes to town, it only takes one glance for sharp-shooting country girl Annie to fall head over heels for its star marksman.

Both have truly met their match, revealing their competitive natures as they vie for best shot - and each other’s hearts.
