ANYTHING GOES

JULY 26 – AUGUST 11, 2024

Step aboard the S.S. American as we sail across the Atlantic with the madcap antics of the cast of Anything Goes.

wealthy fiancé. Set to the glowing music and lyrics of Cole Porter, this Tony Award winning musical comedy is filled with stowaways, blackmail, elaborate disguises, and, of course, tap-dancing sailors. It’s delightful. It’s delicious. It’s de-lovely!
