Climb aboard for the annual spring musical, Anything Goes with music by Cole Porter, at Central Middle School to be performed on Friday, March 22 and Saturday March 23. The cast and crew have been hard at work for months, learning dances, memorizing lines and building the sets.

The production is directed and produced by Rebecca Lipschutz and Brian Maher, with choreography by Julia Magglio.

Anything Goes is set aboard the ocean liner S. S. American, where nightclub 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 Bonnie.

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.

Tickets are available online. General Admission: $15.00. Student Ticket: $10.00. Running time is approximately 2 house with a 15 minute intermission.
