Anything Goes

January 22, 2015 - 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm at Stephens Auditorium

This saucy production is a winner of three 2011 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and Best Choreography. When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention get tossed out the portholes as two unlikely couples set off on the course to true love…proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail. Peppering this timeless classic are some musical theatre’s most memorable standards, including “I Get a Kick out Of You,” “You’re the Top,” and “Anything Goes.”
