Anything Goes, March 2016
The Black Box Theatre is proud to present the classic musical Anything Goes. A shining example of classic musical theatre with epic tap dancing, a madcap book and a wonderfully unexpected and romantic happy ending, the unforgettable Cole Porter score includes De-Lovely, I Get a Kick Out of You, You’re the Top and, of course, the great title song, Anything Goes. Set aboard the S.S. American, the singing-dancing ocean liner overflows with wealth, sailors, a stowaway, gangsters, an evangelist, Wall Street brokers and the most irresistible of showgirls, the brassy-but-lovable Reno Sweeney.
Anything Goes will be directed by Jay Geller (Kildeer), with musical direction by Michael Hillstrom (Woodstock), Choreography by Maggie McCord (Crystal Lake), Musical Conductor Dr. Paige Lush, set design by Thomas Kesling (Glenview), lighting design by Rick Amundsen (Woodstock), costume design by Susan Cowell (Harvard) and stage manager Kathryn McCord (Crystal Lake).

As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night's dream.” (Dramatic Play Services)
