Southwestern Central School will present "Anything Goes," a musical comedy, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
The musical takes place aboard the S.S. American with the musical styling of Cole Porter. As the ship heads out to sea, two unlikely couples, Reno Sweeney, portrayed by Megan Maley, and Sir Evelyn Oakleigh, portrayed by Derek DeVlieger, along with Hope Harcourt, portrayed by Caitlin Brown, and Billy Crocker, portrayed by Jason Porter, try to navigate their way to true love.
Other cast members include: Public Enemy Number 13, Moonface Martin, portrayed by Matt Sunderlin; his sidekick Bonnie, portrayed by Shelby Maberry; a difficult and ever meddling mother, Mrs. Harcourt, portrayed by Alora Sherbert; Whitney, a Wall Street mogul, portrayed by Quinn White; and a lounge act featuring the Angels, portrayed by Francesca Galbato, Kristina Gutneckht, Cassey Ellis, and Abbey Andrews.
The set looks at first glance like a large two story ship, but the moveable set pieces are large flats that will be flown in and out with a set change almost every scene.
The show is directed by Christine Beichner with help from Derek Houser, assistant director; Sue Huther, vocal director; Stephen Bush, technical director; and Janice Carlson, pit conductor. Also helping this year are student choreographer Megan Maley and student assistant director Alora Sherbert.
