The Franklin County High School Drama Club, under the direction of Jennifer Young, will present its spring musical, "Anything Goes," in the FCHS auditorium April 3 - 6.

Show times are at 7 p.m. each night with matinees on Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m.

The story concerns madcap antics aboard an ocean liner from New York to London. Billy Crocker is a stowaway in love with heiress Hope Harcourt, who is engaged to Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Nightclub singer Reno Sweeney and Public Enemy #13 Moonface Martin aid Billy in his quest to win Hope.

"Anything Goes" is an award-winning musical piled high with laughter, romance and tuneful songs, said Young.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors, ages 60 and up. They are available at the door.

All proceeds from the show will help the FCHS Drama Club continue their training and support in the community as actors, musicians and artists, said Young.

"Our program is self-supported and we depend on (community) patronage to continue entertaining our community through the efforts of the performing arts," she said.

The show's music director is Fair Robey with costume design by Young.

The play's conductor is Jim Bateman with sound and lighting by Katie Green and Kimmi Moatz. The stage manager is Breu'ana Cole.

The main cast members are Elisha J. Whitney, Sam Kinsey; Reporter (Charlie), Brandon Hodges; Cameraman, Austin St. Clair; Sir Evelyn Oakleigh, Zack Mattox; Mrs. Wadsworth T. Harcourt, Hannah Wiggonton; Hope Harcourt, Megan Ward; Bishop (Henry T. Dobson), Logan Keatts; Reno Sweeny, Mariah Banks; Billy Crocker, Levi Haskins; and Moonface Martin, Nolen Boyd.
