Our school musical is happening this weekend. They’re doing “Anything Goes”. It’s a romantic comedy set on a ship in the 1930’s. It’s fast-paced and funny. I went last night. I enjoyed it a lot.
I had never seen this show, but was surprised to find out that I knew some of the songs. The title piece, of course, is quite familiar, but I also knew “I Get a Kick out of You” and “It’s De-Lovely”. The kids (and their directors) did a great job. The set was amazing. They built a huge structure in the middle of the gym. I’m wondering if they might be willing to come re-do my front porch. And the number of people involved in the production is amazing. The director said it was a record for our school. It’s like a third of the student body. Cool!
There was much singing and dancing and silliness. I didn’t even fall asleep, and the play didn’t end until after 10! Good show, people. Good show.
