ACT One pre­par­ing for their show Any­thing Goes

Loughborough Echo - - LEISURE -

YOUTH theatre group ACT One have been busy re­hears­ing in Shep­shed for their 23rd an­nual show, Cole Porter’s Any­thing Goes.

Hav­ing first per­formed the show back in 2006, they are sail­ing the show back into Shep­shed’s Iveshead Theatre from Jan­uary 30 for five per­for­mances only.

This clas­sic mu­si­cal is packed full of the won­der­ful tunes from Cole Porter, in­clud­ing among oth­ers, Blow Gabriel Blow, All Through The Night, It’s Delovely, Friend­ship and, of course the ti­tle song Any­thing Goes, with its big tap rou­tines.

The script is full of time­less com­edy and the story is set aboard the S.S. Amer­i­can ocean liner, where night­club singer/evan­ge­list Reno Sweeney is en route from New York to Eng­land.

Her pal Billy Crocker has stowed away to be near his love, Hope Har­court, but the prob­lem is Hope is en­gaged to the wealthy Lord Eve­lyn Oak­leigh.

Join­ing this love tri­an­gle on board the lux­ury liner are Pub­lic En­emy Num­ber 13, Moon­face Martin and his side­kickin-crime Bon­nie. With the help of some elab­o­rate dis­guises and good old-fash­ioned black­mail, Reno and Martin join forces to help Billy in his quest to win Hope’s heart.

Oliver Hal­ford teams up with Olivia Need­ham to play Billy and Reno re­spec­tively, with Is­abel Mor­ris and Alex Les­son as Hope and Sir Eve­lyn. Moon­face Martin and Bon­nie are por­trayed by Will Sav­age and Mia Champ­neysDavis. They are ably sup­ported by Nicola Coles, Ryan More­land, Noah Bag­u­ley, Kyle Corn­well and an all-singing and danc­ing cast of 29.

Tick­ets for the show are avail­able priced £11 and £9 from the Box Of­fice on 07779 108743.

And if you are in­ter­ested in join­ing the group for fu­ture shows, in­clud­ing Chicago (High School ver­sion) in 2020, then please call 07904 303488 to reg­is­ter your place at their forth­com­ing au­di­tions.

ACT One will be per­form­ing Any­thing Goes at Shep­shed’s Iveshead Theatre.
