Shaler Area High School students will present the classic musical “Anything Goes” for two weekends: February 23-25 and March 2-3.
“Anything Goes” infuses comedy and drama as it follows a cast of characters and their adventures aboard an ocean liner. Senior Jake Bartosh plays Billy Crocker, a stowaway who is in love with heiress Hope Harcourt, played by sophomore Kelsey Marshall, who is engaged to Lord Evelyn Oakleigh, played by sophomore Alex Almonte. Billy Crocker befriends nightclub singer Reno Sweeney, played by senior Emily Yuretich, and gangster Moonface Martin, played by senior Zach Reed, who help him in his quest to win Hope’s affection.
“Anything Goes” paved the way for musical theater with its intricate song and dance numbers, featuring the music and lyrics of Cole Porter, and more than 130 high school students between the cast, crew and orchestra will bring this show to life on Shaler Area’s high school stage.
The performances will be 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, February 23-24 and March 2-3, and 2 p.m. on Sunday, February 25, at the high school auditorium, located at 381 Wible Run Road.
Tickets are $10 for reserve seating or $7 for general admission. Residents with a Silver Titan Pass receive general admission tickets for free. Tickets will be sold in advance and at the door. For more information, contact the high school activities office at 412-492-1200 Press 8 and ext. 1530.
