All aboard for District 622 Summer Theatre’s ‘Anything Goes’

District 622’s Summer Theatre will present the musical comedy “Anything Goes,” for one weekend only, July 23-26.

“Anything Goes,” is, of course, one of Cole Porter’s hit songs, and joins other classics such as “Blow Gabriel Blow,” “You’re the Top” and “Friendship” among the Porter tunes in the production.

In the delightful plot penned by Guy Bolton, P.G. Wodehouse, Howard Lindsay and Russell Crouse, Wall Street broker Billy Crocker stows away on the liner S.S. American to be with his love, socialite Hope Harcourt, only to discover she’s engaged to English gentleman Lord Evelyn Oakleigh.

Now Billy must join forces with nightclub singer and former evangelist Reno Sweeney and Public Enemy #13, Moonface Martin, to win Hope’s heart, employing hilarious disguises, outrageous blackmail and a variety of other madcap schemes to get to happily ever after.

The District 622 summer drama program is offered by the Community Education Department. The cast, directed by Kevin Barnard, includes a range of ages from the district and surrounding suburbs. Technical director Ryland DeLaCroix and musical director Derick Rehurek also join the artistic team.

All performances will set sail at North High School, 2416 11th Avenue East, North St. Paul at 7 p.m. July 23 to July 25 and 2 p.m. July 26. Tickets are available at www.isd622.org/summertheatre for $7 until noon July 18, and are valid for any age and any performance. Tickets are also available at the door for $10 for adults and $8 for seniors and youth. For more information, call 651-702-8814 or 651-748-6090.
