The John Lyon musical production for 2018 is Cole Porter‘s classic tale of ploys, confessions and mistaken identities, Anything Goes.
This spectacular musical a favourite on Broadway and stages across the world – will come to the Ryan Theatre, Harrow-on-the-Hill on Monday 10th, Tuesday 11th and Wednesday 12th December 2018, produced by the School’s Drama Department.
- It’s the 1930s and the S S American is preparing to set sail from New York to England. Billy Crocker decides to stow away in hopes of wooing his long-lost love Hope Harcourt. But Hope’s mother, Evangeline, is delighted that Hope is engaged to stuffy Englishman, Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Also on the ship are Reno Sweeney, an evangelist-turned-nightclub singer, and her bevy of ‘angelic’ showgirls, and Moonface Martin, a gangster known as ‘Public Enemy 13’ and his moll Erma, both on the run and in disguise.
A tale of disguises, ploys, confessions, mistaken identities, and marriage proposals is all set to the fantastic music of Cole Porter.
How will everything work out? Who knows? Anything goes!
