Algonquin Regional High School is putting on its next big production. This week they’ll be singing and dancing to Cole Porter’s “Anything Goes”.

The play will run this Thursday, December 8 through Saturday, December 10th in the school’s auditorium. The curtains go up at 7:00 pm each night. Tickets are $10 per person at the door.

If you aren’t familiar with the play, it’s a fun romantic comedy with witty lines, snappy tunes, and entertaining dance numbers.

I remember it fondly from the school’s production back in my heyday. I was impressed by my classmates performances. Judging by the school paper’s coverage, it sounds like this cast’s classmates are in for a treat of their own:

“A lot of people think because they know [the actors] so well, it will ruin the effect of seeing them on stage, but it’s completely the opposite,” [junior Connor] Macchi said. “Because when you see them onstage as this character that is completely not like their normal personality, it’s completely entertaining and incredible.”
