This weekend, ‘Anything Goes’

Westosha Central High School is presenting the 1930s-era inspired musical “Anything Goes” this weekend. Central senior Jaymes Gayhart plays stockbroker stowaway Billy Crocker.

“This is an absolute blast. Honestly, this is the most fun I have had at a school activity,” Gayhart said.

The musical takes place on the SS American, sailing from New York to England with an unusual group of passengers. You’re sure to hear the lingo of the dirty ’30s with such characters as second-rate gangster Moonface Martin, played by Robert Ehr, a wealthy debutante and her mother, Hope Harcourt, played by Raven Renje, and Evangeline Harcourt, played by Madison MacIsaac.
