Oswego High School Presents 'Anything Goes'
Apr 28, 2014 02:02PM ● Published by Steven Jack
“Anything Goes” is a classic musical theatre piece full of comedy, love stories and tap dancing. “Anything Goes” follows the story of the nightclub singer turned evangelist, Reno Sweeney, as she sets aboard the S.S. American with her fallen Angels in tow.
Reno’s longtime friend and possible suitor, Billy Crocker, finds himself on the ship after he follows a former flame, Hope Harcourt, onto the ship. He does this after hearing Hope is set to marry the wealthy Lord Evelyn Oakleigh on the S.S. American.
Sailing across the Atlantic is also Moonface Martin, Public Enemy Number Two, with his sidekick and sailor fanatic, Erma, who both start to stir up trouble for the Captain on his ship. What’s to follow is a hilarious and yet touching story of love, deceit, and a few dance numbers.
With music and lyrics by Cole Porter, audiences will recognize several tunes like “De-Lovely,” “Friendship,” and “Anything Goes.” This musical was first performed in 1934, but has since had the likes of Tony Award winners Patti LuPone and Sutton Foster play the title role of Reno Sweeney.
Consider setting sail with the finest Oswego High School has to offer.
Performances are April 30-May 3 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $5 for students and senior citizens, and $10 for adults. Tickets can be purchased at Ohstickets.org, and are $2 additional at the door.
