children's schools, so it's essential that we
continue to do what we do best - provide Bay Area youth with quality arts education," says SFArtsED Artistic Director Emily Keeler. "This year's troupe represents 32 Bay Area schools and includes 54 kids ranging in age from 9 to 15. In Everything Goes!, along with the brilliance of Cole Porter's music, they do a tremendous job showcasing the craft and skills they have acquired in the last months and also from their work in our summer intensives and school programs."

Everything Goes! The Music of Cole Porter features several of Porter's most famous songs as well as some of his lesser-known gems. Among the numbers being performed in this all-singing, all-dancing revue are mainstays, including "In the Still of the Night" sung a cappella by the entire cast, "Night and Day," "I Love Paris" and "Begin the Beguine." The show also features rarely heard Porter tunes such as "Live and Let Live" and "Ritz Rock and Roll."

Ticket prices are $15 for students and seniors and $20 for general admission. Tickets for the 7 p.m. show on Saturday, February 5 are $40 and include admission to the SFArtsED Players Family Benefit Reception, which raises money for SFArtsED scholarships. Tickets are available at CityBoxOffice.com or by calling 415-392-4400.
