Centennial & South Drama Programs Join Forces for Musical Production

January 24, 2019

It’s the time of year where the drama department starts their annual musical practice; however, this year Centennial’s drama department is doing something very special.  Due to the discovery that South High School was not going to be able to have their own musical this year, the drama directors from both schools decided to join the two drama departments and do a musical together. They are doing the classic musical, “Anything Goes,” from the 1930s, but they will be doing the version updated in the 1980s.  The performance will take place at Centennial High School on dates which are yet to be announced.

“Anything Goes” is a crazy adventure from the 1930s. It’s about a sly, young stockbroker named Billy Crocker, and his friend Reno Sweeney, who is a famous evangelist (someone who publicly preaches the word of god) turned singer.  The duo does their best to try and stop a wedding between Sir Evelyn Oakleigh (a wealthy Englishmen) and Billy’s love interest, Hope Harcourt.  In order to do this, Billy sneaks onto a boat, befriends a known criminal, Moonface Martin, pretends to be a certain different passenger (which just so happens to be public enemy number one), and other crazy things you will only find in a musical from the 1930s.
