WHS presents 'Anything Goes'

Get ready to set sail with the cast and crew of Woodinville High School's latest musical production, "Anything Goes."
   This laugh-out-loud tap dancing comedy combines the farcical genius of Cole Porter with the tender love story on board the international cruiser, "American," lead by upcoming sophomore Tim Campbell and Senior Alexanne Brown.
   Tim plays Billy Crocker, the fast talking broker who is trying to win back his true love Hope Harcourt, played by Alexanne Brown. Hope is engaged to Sir Evelyn Oakleigh, the stiff upper lipped snob of English heritage brilliantly performed by senior Weston Davis.
   Along the way this trio must frantically deals with the cons and laughs of Moonface Martin, the swindling kind-hearted gangster played by senior James Swift and his side-kick Bonnie played by senior Laura Pyles.
   Junior Whitney Adkins takes another lead as the nightclub singer Reno Sweeny, accompanied, of course, by her entourage of gorgeous angels that are set to woo the entire cast into realizing that when they're out to sea ... anything goes.
   The show opens on May 18, at 7:30 p.m. It will be performed the following night, May 19, with a 7:30 p.m. curtain as well. May 20 will see a matinee performance with a curtain of 2 p.m. The play will also be performed May 24 and May 25, and will close on May 26, all with 7:30 p.m. curtains.
   Tickets can be bought in advance by calling Carol Smith at (425) 883-0184. General admission is $8.50 and the VIP seats are sold for $10 each. But if you happen to be lucky enough to be a Woodinville High School student, the ticket price for general admission drops to $6.50.
   Order your tickets now because this show is expected to sell out by closing night.
