ANYTHING GOES

JUNE 28 - JULY 6, 2024

Directed by Amy Sander

Actor and Actress dipping and kissingIn the uproarious world of "Anything Goes," the SS American becomes a floating stage for a whirlwind of comedic chaos! Set sail with Billy Crocker, a love-struck stowaway determined to win the heart of debutante Hope Harcourt. There's just one problem: she's engaged to the wealthy and utterly clueless Lord Evelyn Oakleigh.

Actor holding stuffed toy making funny faceAs the ship embarks on its transatlantic voyage, Billy enlists the help of nightclub singer Reno Sweeney, whose sass could sink a battleship but whose heart is as big as the ocean. Together with Moonface Martin, Public Enemy Number 13 and a man with a knack for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, they cook up a scheme to thwart Hope's impending marriage and unite her with Billy.

Meanwhile, chaos ensues on deck as disguises are donned, mistaken identities multiply faster than sea-sick passengers, and romantic entanglements tangle like rigging in a storm.

Moonface Martin, masquerading as a clergyman, inadvertently becomes the ship's chaplain, while Lord Evelyn finds himself grappling with newfound desires for... American slang?

Group of actors posing for photosAs the voyage progresses, the antics crescendo to a fever pitch during a madcap shipboard party where everyone is simultaneously in love, out of love, or just plain confused. Through a series of near-misses, hearts are won, alliances shift like the tides, and the true meaning of love emerges—along with a few unexpected dance numbers.

Actress making funny face with actor holding stuffed toy dog"Anything Goes" is a toe-tapping tribute to the Roaring Twenties, where the only thing more outrageous than the fashion is the comedy. With unforgettable tunes, witty banter, and enough romantic mishaps to fill a three-ring circus, it's a voyage you won't soon forget—because when it comes to love and laughter, anything goes!

Hello, Dolly!
July 12 - 20, 2024

Directed by Liz Ernst

This musical adaptation of Thornton Wilder's hit play The Matchmaker bursts with humor, romance, energetic dance and some of the greatest songs in musical theatre history. The romantic and comic exploits of Dolly Gallagher-Levi, turn-of-the-century matchmaker and "woman who arranges things," are certain to thrill and entertain audiences again and again.

Hello, Dolly! premiered on Broadway on January 16, 1964 at the St. James Theatre. Opening with Carol Channing in the title role, the show ultimately played for 2,844 performances, making it – at the time – the longest-running Broadway musical in history. The West End production ran for 794 performances at London's Drury Lane Theatre. The musical has been revived several times on Broadway, most recently in 2017, starring Bette Midler as Dolly Levi.
