Summer Musical Theatre Program to Present Musical Classic Anything Goes
The New Millennium Production Company, the summer theater program of the Greater Egg Harbor Regional High School District will be presenting the classic musical ANYTHING GOES on Friday, August 9th, Saturday, August 10th and Sunday, August 11th at 7:00 PM in the Oakcrest High School Auditorium.

ANYTHING GOES is the age old tale of Boy Meets Girl and the complications which ensue on the S. S. America as it crosses the Atlantic Ocean from New York to London. On board the boat is socialite Hope Harcourt who is engaged to a royal Englishman named Evelyn Oakleigh. However, Hope’s past has stowed away on board in the guise of Billy Crocker, who is hopelessly in love with her. Also on board is the famous evangelist-turned-nightclub singer Reno Sweeney, who is looking for love herself. And what ocean cruise would be complete without a known criminal, Moonface Martin and his moll Bonnie. The book is by Guy Bolton, P. G. Wodehouse, Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse. The score is by Cole Porter and features Broadway classics like “It’s De-Lovely”, “Friendship”, “I Get A Kick Out of You”, “All Through the Night”, “You’re the Top”, “Blow, Gabrielle, Blow”, “Let’s Misbehave” and the title song “Anything Goes”.
