Over 1000 patrons enjoyed Circle Theatre Company’s season finale, Anything Goes! Directed by Mrs. Linda Novak and produced in partnership with Circle Studio Players, this shipboard romantic comedy starring Brynn Creasman (CSA ’18) as Reno Sweeney and Noah Lyon (CSA ’19) as Billy Crocker delighted audiences of young and old alike. Highlights of the show included a six-minute tap dance section in the title song, “Anything Goes,” a set which “magically” opened to reveal the ship’s staterooms (thanks to set designer Lilly Hastings and set builder David Theriault), multiple dance lifts, and even a live dog (continually carried by CSA senior Emma Thacker as Evangeline Harcourt)! Additional outstanding performances included Bella Lamb (CSA ’19) who beautifully portrayed the debutante Hope Harcourt, Amanda Townes (CSA ’19) in the hilarious role of Erma, the gangster’s girlfriend, Carson Kreitner (CSA ’22) as the gangster Moonface Martin, Joseph South (CSA ’21) as Elisha Whitney, and D.J. Hill (CSA ’20) as Lord Evelyn Oakleigh, who brought the house down with his song “Gypsy in Me.” The 35-student cast set box office records with a single performance larger than any other in Circle Theatre history with over 350 patrons attending the closing show. Anything Goes has now sailed away, but stay tuned to hear what the 2018-19 Circle Theatre Company season will bring!
