Saint John’s recent production of Cole Porter’s classic, Anything Goes was a huge hit! All performances took place in The Robert R. Jay Performing Arts Center, located in Founders Hall at Saint John’s High School and featured students from Saint John’s and the surrounding communities.
Music, dance, laughs and the age-old tale of Boy Meets Girl – no musical puts it on stage better than Anything Goes! A hilarious shipboard romp, wrapped around one of Cole Porter’s most magical scores, Anything Goes is Delightful, Delicious, and De-Lovely.
Audiences joined an animated cast of characters as they boarded the S.S. American for what turned into a farcical Transatlantic Crossing from New York to London. Reno Sweeney, a night club singer and former evangelist bumps into her dear friend Billy as she travels with her backup singers. Billy, a Wall Street broker, is traveling to win the love of his life, Hope Harcourt. Sadly, Hope is also traveling with her fiancé, a rather uptight British gentleman, and her mother, and even more uptight New York society matron. Hilarity ensues as Billy fights for his love in this romantic musical farce, complete with mistaken identity, slapstick humor and even Moonface Martin, also known as Public Enemy No. 13!
