The age-old tale of boy-meets-girl
and the complications which ensue intrigue every audience, and no musical puts it on stage better than Anything Goes.
This show is an amusing story wrapped around one of Cole Porter’s magical scores.
The story is set aboard the ocean liner S.S. American, where night club singer/evangelist Reno
Sweeney is en route from New York to England. Her pal Billy Crocker has stowed away to be near his love, Hope Harcourt,
but the problem is Hope is engaged to the wealthy Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Joining this love triangle on board the luxury liner
are Public Enemy #13, Moonface Martin and his sidekick-in-crime Erma. With the help of some elaborate disguises, tap-dancing
sailors and good old-fashioned blackmail, Reno and Martin join forces to help Billy in his quest to win Hope’s heart.
Anything Goes is a shining example of classic musical theater, complete with amazing tap numbers,
campy jokes, unlikely happy endings and eminently hummable songs like “De-Lovely,” “I Get a Kick Out Of
You” and “Anything Goes,” courtesy of the unforgettable score by Cole Porter.
Theater Company strives to offer performances that families can see together. With the exception of some slight sexual innuendo
and a few jokes that might be considered un-PC by today’s standards, Anything Goes is fast-paced, farcical
and kid-friendly. We look forward to seeing you!
