Anything Goes is Cole Porter's nautical classic - one of the greatest musicals in Broadway history.

A saucy screwball musical that escapes into the madcap world of luxury cruising, where gangster meets priest, revivalist turns nightclub singer, and chaos ensues onboard a cruise ship sailing the high seas.

Telling the age-old tale of boy-meets-girl and the complications that ensue, Anything Goes will delight and intrigue every audience. Set in the early 1930s onboard a cruise liner, the S.S. American, bound from New York to London, it carries an unusual group of passengers. Included amongst them are a gangster (Public Enemy #13 Moonface Martin), a wealthy debutante and her mother (Hope and Evangeline Harcourt), a nightclub singer (Reno Sweeny), a wealthy New York businessman (Elisha Whitney) and his stowaway assistant (Billy Crocker).

When Billy falls in love with heiress Hope, who is engaged to Lord Evelyn Oakleigh, he stows away, setting off a chain reaction of comedic consequences that has passengers and crew singing and dancing their way across the Atlantic. This crazy comedy is replete with disguises and mistaken identities and, eventually, four happy couples - a perfect mix for any classic Broadway musical.

Featuring Broadway hits:
• I Get A Kick Out Of You • All Through The Night • It’s De-Lovely • You’re The Top • Easy to Love • Blow, Gabriel, Blow • Anything Goes • Buddie Beware

...And showcasing:
Anything Goes stars an all New Zealand cast, led by the vivacious Jackie Clarke, together with Australasia’s hottest star of stage Tyran Parke. With full orchestra, Anything Goes will treat audiences to a journey of toe-tapping fun and frivolity, featuring sublime characters and stunning, all original, sets and costumes. This all new production of the American classic will wow, young and old alike.

Fun, flirty and utterly frivolous. Come join the party!
