Anything Goes

A musical performed Tuesday 8th to Saturday 12th October 2002 at The Bolsover School

The action takes place on the S.S. American, sailing from New York to England.

Onboard are the beautiful American heiress Hope Harcourt, her English fiance Sir Evelyn Oakleigh and Hope’s mother.  Stowing away onboard is Billy Cocker, a young admirer of Hope’s who believes she would really marry the silly Sir Evelyn and determines to stop her.  Public Enemy Number Thirteen, with his moll Bonnie, is also along for the ride and he passes onto Billy the passport and ticket of a gangster friend of his who didn’t make the boat.  This leads to unwelcome complications for Billy as he and the Public Enemy have to keep changing disguises to avoid arrest.

Keeping the steam at boiling point in the ship’s engine room and working the stabilisers overtime is the sexy, incandescent Reno Sweeny; ex-evangelist and current night-club singer.  With her help all the shipboard disasters are averted and the romances are all sorted out – including her own.
