What’s in store for Anything Goes

This year, Cary-Grove will be putting on the musical production of Anything Goes. Set in the early 1930’s, the show takes you aboard a cruise ship filled with tap dancing, high energy singing, comedic and lovable characters, and an all-around whirlwind adventure.

“I’ve had this show on my list of musicals to do for years, and we are all very excited about it,” said one of the directors, Mr. Boncosky. This production has a little bit of everything. It is a show that both the young and old will be captivated by and will leave its audience with a smile on their faces.

As anticipated, the construction for the upcoming new auditorium has posed some new limitations. Although the rehearsals will still take place at C-G, the actual performances will be held at Crystal Lake South High School.

Another caveat is the fact that the cast will only have dress rehearsals to perform onstage, whereas usually they have access to the stage at their convenience.

“It honestly does not matter where we perform the musical, I am confident that this show will be fantastic,” junior Nels Horan said.

The cast is already working incredibly hard to make this show special for both those involved, and for audience members.

“Overall, I am just genuinely excited,” said senior Anders Stadler, who plays the role of Evelyn Oakeleigh. “This is a show completely different from last year’s 9 to 5, and this is definitely an all-around very versatile and talented cast. I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”

There are elaborate full-ensemble numbers, complicated love triangles, lots of laughs and so much more. With such a dedicated, hardworking, talented cast and crew, this is certainly one show you do not want to miss.
