Anything Goes Production Notes

The voyage of a lifetime awaited all those taking up an invitation from fifty Students of the Northavon School of Drama, performing as the Northavon Youth Theatre Company aboard the S S American, sailing from New York to London, in Cole Porter’s musical extravaganza: Anything Goes!


The Captain and his crew entertain a collection of weird and wonderful characters, masquerading as passengers, such as a gangster disguised as a priest, accompanied by a man-mad moll, an aristocratic eccentric, a night club singer, who purports to be an evangelist “in her spare time” and a host of Angels, who are anything but . . . !  Of course, it goes without saying that as well as a complete confusion of identities, there is an intriguing love triangle, which we hope will be resolved as successfully as the more mature pairing of a wealthy boss and an impecunious widow!  With sumptuous costumes, exciting lighting, creative sets and a hilarious script, plus terrific tap, beautiful ballroom and cheeky Charleston routines, the bonus is the wonderful music of Cole Porter.  Brought to life by a nine-piece Band, such memorable tunes as You’re the Top, It’s Delovely, Blow, Gabriel, Blow, Friendship and the show-stopping title number: Anything Goes are too good to miss!





Bon Voyage!
