Grosse Pointe North Performing Arts is pleased to announce its upcoming production of the musical comedy, Anything Goes, directed by Marty Bufalini.
Written by Cole Porter and based on the original book and concept by Guy Bolton, P.G. Wodehouse, Howard Lindsay, and Russel Crouse, it will be performed at the Grosse Pointe North Performing Arts Center March 8, 9, and 10, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. After Friday March 9th’s performance, there will be a “talk back” when audience members will have the exciting opportunity to talk with and ask questions of cast members and the director.
Anything Goes involves lots of crazy antics and sordid characters aboard the S.S. American ocean liner bound from New York to London. Billy Crocker, a young Wall Street Broker, is a stowaway in love with heiress Hope Harcourt. Hope, who is now engaged to wealthy Englishman Lord Evelyn Oakleigh, can’t resist Billy’s charms.
Nightclub singer Reno Sweeney and Public Enemy #13, Moonface Martin help Billy win Hope and in the process, have a few close calls of their own along the way. Criminals, mistaken identities, and the brig may get the best of them all in the end!
Please mark your calendars for this wonderful event. Tickets may be purchased in advance at Wild Birds Unlimited at 20485 Mack in Grosse Pointe Woods or at the Grosse Pointe North Performing Arts Center each night of the show.
