ANYTHING GOES UK Tour Coming to Sheffield's Crucible this Christmas
Anything Goes, which brings tap dancing sailors and sassy heroines to the Crucible stage this Christmas, will go on to tour the UK and Ireland for the rest of 2015.
Directed by Daniel Evans and choreographed by Alistair David, this brand new production of Cole Porter's classic, multi-award winning musical comedy, Anything Goes transports you to the magical age of tap dancing and high society.
Sheffield Theatres is creating the show in association with Stage Entertainment, the producers behind hits including Singin' in the Rain, Hairspray and Strictly Come Dancing. Anything Goes will tap dance onto the Crucible stage from Saturday 29 November until Saturday 17 January 2015 after which it will go on to venues including the New Wimbledon Theatre, Mayflower, Southampton, Kings Theatre, Glasgow, Birmingham Hippodrome and Sunderland Empire.
Daniel Evans, Sheffield Theatres' Artistic Director said: "It's 80 years since Cole Porter's exhilarating score arrived on Broadway and I'm truly delighted that this collaboration between Sheffield Theatres and Stage Entertainment will see our production perform right across the UK and Ireland."
Rebecca Quigley, Chief Executive of Stage Entertainment UK said: "I'm very excited to be working with Daniel and Alistair, whose work I have loved over the last ten years. They're the perfect creative team to stage this hugely entertaining musical comedy."
When Billy Crocker discovers that his heart's desire, debutante heiress Hope Harcourt is engaged to an English aristocrat, he stows away aboard the S.S. American to win her back.
