Photo Flash: First Look at Beef and Boards Dinner Theatre's ANYTHING GOES

Get on board for some delightful and de-lovely entertainment as Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre presents the nautical musical Anything Goes. Recently revived on Broadway, this lighthearted Cole Porter classic celebrates its 80th anniversary this year, and tap dances through May 11 at Beef & Boards. Scroll down to see some photos from the production!

An amusing story wrapped around one of the magical scores of native Hoosier Cole Porter, Anything Goes is the age-old tale of boy-meets-girl, but sent out to sea aboard the ocean liner S.S. American. Young travelers fall in love, but the girl is engaged to marry in just days! Throw in some disguised characters, blackmail and tap-dancing sailors, and it adds up to an upbeat production that's the top!

Anything Goes feature the famous songs "Friendship," "It's De-Lovely," "I Get A Kick Out Of You," "You're the Top," and the title song, "Anything Goes."

Starring as Billy Crocker, a young broker in love, is Timothy Ford, who last enchanted Beef & Boards audiences as Don Lockwood in Singin' In The Rain. Whitney Meyer, who played Cosette in LES MISERABLES last season, returns to the Beef & Boards stage as Hope Harcourt, the debutante engaged to marry Lord Evelyn Oakleigh, played by audience favorite Jeff Stockberger. Performing as Reno Sweeney, the nightclub singer who helps Billy, is Deb Wims, who brought audiences to their feet with her portrayal of Roxie Hart in Beef & Boards' production of Chicago. Funnyman Jack Milo returns as Moonface Martin, a gangster and Public Enemy #13.

Anything Goes is on stage for 40 performances in the intimate space of Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre. Tickets range from $38.50 to $63.50 and include Chef Odell Ward's dinner buffet, prepared in-house for each performance, and select beverages. Parking is always free.
