SCC Theatre Spring Show: Anything Goes
SCC Theatre presents Anything Goes
Farcical hijinks abound in this theatrical romp across the Atlantic, with plenty of elaborate disguises, tap-dancing sailors, and good old-fashioned blackmail along the way. As the S. S. American sails between New York and England, we meet a comically colorful assemblage of passengers: Reno Sweeney, a popular nightclub singer and former evangelist, her pal Billy Crocker, a lovelorn Wall Street broker who has come aboard to try to win the favor of his beloved Hope Harcourt (who is engaged to another passenger, Sir Evelyn Oakleigh), and a second-rate conman named Moonface Martin, aka “Public Enemy #13.” Song, dance, and farcical antics ensue as Reno and Moonface try to help Billy win the love of his life. This hilarious, heart-warming romantic comedy, featuring such classics as “I Get a Kick Out of You”, “You’re the Top”, and “It’s De-Lovely”, this musical “exists to put a daffy grin on your face” (The Washington Post) offering an evening of “sheer escape” into a world of side-splitting laughter, toe-tapping music, and plenty of heart.
Show dates: April 18th through May 5th, 2024
