CHICAGO HEIGHTS, Ill. (March 29, 2019) – Music, dance, laughs, and the age-old tale of Boy Meets Girl—no musical puts it on stage better than Anything Goes, Cole Porter’s classic 1930’s musical. A hilarious shipboard romp, wrapped around one of Cole Porter’s most magical scores, the story has remained an audience favorite, playing to Off Broadway audiences in 1962, then returning to Broadway in 1987 and 2011. Performances at Marian Catholic High School will run April 12-14 in the Monsignor Croarkin Auditorium at Marian Catholic.

The cast of 40 includes leads Angel Alzeidan ’19 (Schererville) as Reno Sweeney, Kyle Lavin ’20 (Chicago) as Billy Crocker, Shannon Fitzgerald ’20 (Park Forest) as Hope Harcourt, Andres Vazquez ’21 (Chicago) as Moonface Martin, Ashley Saul ’20 (Park Forest) as Bonnie, and Blake Recupido ’19 (Matteson) as Elisha J. Whitney.

Marian Catholic’s staging of Anything Goes is directed by Laura Hilger ’14, with the assistance of Claire Jakubisin, Choral Director; Greg Bimm, Director of Bands; Brandi Brumfield, Choreographer; and Sam Sullivan, Technical Director.

Anything Goes introduced several songs into the American musical lexicon, such as “Anything Goes,” “It’s De-Lovely,” “Friendship,” “You’re the Top,” “Blow, Gabriel, Blow,” and “I Get a Kick Out of You.”

Performances will be at 7:00pm on Friday, April 12, and Saturday April 13, and 2:00pm on Sunday, April 14. Tickets are $5 for students, $9 for senior citizens, and $10 for adults. To purchase tickets online, visit
