Anything Goes – Community Musical Production
Sat, Sun, Mon, & Tues, July 4, 5, 6, & 7, 2015, 7:00 pm
The RFA presents the age-old tale of Boy-Meets-Girl and no musical puts it on stage better than ANYTHING GOES. This show is an amusing story wrapped around one of Cole Porter’s magical scores. Rangeley’s amazing local talent will fill the Lakeside Theater stage with singing and dancing; Produced by Millie Hoekstra, Directed by Susan Hamilton.
The S. S. American is sailing between New York and England with 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 con-man 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.
