Last night, the Shores Allegros kicked off its production of Anything Goes, the musical, which sets sail on a journey to discover the works of love.
Anything Goes continues tonight at 7 and tomorrow at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets for the musical sell for $10-$15 and can be purchased in choir director Shawn Lawton’s room today after school, at the door, and online at www.showtix4u.com.
Anything Goes is a complicated love story which takes place in the 1930s.
“This show makes you want to dance, sing, and everything in between,” said junior Maura Wilcox, who is a member of the chorus in the show. “It’s really funny, and the humor relates to people of many ages, so it’s a crowd pleaser for everyone.”
The story starts as friends, Reno Sweeney (senior Natalie Liegeois) and Billy Crocker (junior Jacob Rausch) are aboard a cruise ship, heading to England from New York.
“My character is super confident and sassy, which I really enjoy playing, and loves to dance. I’m not always the most confident person, but I can be a little sassy, and I love to dance,” Liegeois said. “Playing this role makes me feel empowered and strong because her personality is so fun.”
Also on board are two lovers, Hope Harcourt (junior Emma Nelson) and Sir Evelyn Oakleigh (senior Gabe Fox).
“My favorite thing about my character is that he gets some of the most hilarious lines in the show and is incredibly fun to play,” Fox said.
Aboard the ship, Billy tells his love for Hope to Reno. To help a friend out, Reno decides to seduce Sir
Evelyn in hopes that Hope and Billy can be together. Along the way, there are many complications. Song and dance are a huge component in putting the story all together.
Not only is Liegeois excited for her role, but being backstage with the cast is one of the best parts of the show, she said.
“Every year, the cast always seems to be one of my favorite parts. I have made so many friends and have also strengthened many of my relationships with friends who I don’t necessarily get to see when I am at school,” Liegeois said. “It is really cool seeing the long days put into the production come together and be proud of the results.”
