ANYTHING GOES!

OCTC is thrilled to present its 13th Junior Company show since the debut in 2008. Youth from Ocean City and the surrounding area have the opportunity to work under a professional production staff and are exposed to a memorable theatre experience. This production is for students entering High School, currently in High School or a June 2020 High School graduate.

In Anything Goes the S. S. American is sailing between New York and England with a comically colorful assemblage of passengers: Reno Sweeney, a popular nightclub singer and former evangelist, her pal Billy Crocker, a lovelorn Wall Street broker who has come aboard to try to win the favor of his beloved Hope Harcourt (who is engaged to another passenger, Sir Evelyn Oakleigh), and a second-rate conman named Moonface Martin, aka “Public Enemy #13.” Song, dance, and farcical antics ensue as Reno and Moonface try to help Billy win the love of his life.

Grades: 9th - 12th grade as of Fall 2020 or a 2020 graduate

Cost: $50 audition fee plus $275 participation fee
