Our students will focus on character work, acting through singing, and scene basics while putting on the productions of "Anything Goes JR." 

There will be a balanced emphasis on music, acting, and dance. This program nurtures rehearsal and performance principles, requiring commitment, teamwork, and collaboration within diverse creative processes. 

Our Auditions will be held prior to the start of our sessions. Please prepare 16 measures of a musical theater song of your choice. When choosing a song, consider the style of the show and the range of the character you are auditioning for. In addition, prepare a 1-minute monologue. 

Due to the intensity of this course, commitment is very important to us. Students will be asked to sign an agreement stating their understanding of our commitment policy. At our audition, please provide a list of any KNOWN conflicts during our rehearsal period. Further, any student who misses three rehearsals (or the equivalent of six tardies) will be at risk of losing one of their performance. Please keep this policy in mind PRIOR to signing up.

CHARACTERS

ELISHA J. WHITNEY is a rich businessman with expensive taste. He is demanding, straightforward, and knows what he wants. 

FRED is the owner of the bar in Manhattan who attends to Whitney while he waits for Billy. 

BILLY CROCKER is the show’s leading young man with stars in his eyes and a sweet, earnest disposition. He is Whitney’s assistant and gets in a ton of trouble in pursuit of love. 

RENO SWEENEY is the show’s leading lady. She is foremost an entertainer and can command attention just by walking through the door. Reno enjoys the spotlight and easily makes friends with everyone she meets. 

BETTY and ESTELLE are young women saying goodbye to their sailors heading off to sea. 

The SAILORS (including SAILOR 1 and SAILOR 2) are possibly the most recognizable characters from the entire show. They provide support and life for the world of the show. 

The CAPTAIN is a man of authority, but he is a bit more concerned with making sure the ship has a celebrity aboard than the voyage itself. 

The PURSER and the DECK STEWARDESS are essentially the Captain’s right and left hands. 

The MINISTER, or Henry T. Dobson, is a pious, religious man traveling with his most recent converts. 

LUKE and JOHN are recent converts to Christianity with a weakness for gambling. They first appear to be devout followers, but once the Minister is gone, Luke and John finally let loose and revert back to their old ways.

ANGELS are a pack of ladies with the vocal and dance stylings to back up Reno. Entertainers by profession, the Angels are filled to the brim with talent, sass, and charisma. 

MRS. EVANGELINE HARCOURT is Hope’s overbearing mother who truly wants the best for her daughter and herself, and she will go to whatever lengths necessary to make sure she doesn’t end up poor. 

HOPE HARCOURT is the perfect mixture of poise and properness befitting her upper class status. While she does care about her place in society, love is what motivates her in the long run. 

LORD EVELYN OAKLEIGH is a British gentleman betrothed to Hope Harcourt. He is personable and enjoys meeting other people and learning about their lives. He may come off a bit stiff, but underneath this proper exterior is a generous man looking for excitement. 

MOONFACE MARTIN is a gangster who is on the run (as usual). Moonface may not be the smartest person in the world, but when he commits to an idea, he sticks to it. 

ERMA is Moonface Martin’s partner in crime. Erma is certainly not intimidated by Moonface’s gangster reputation. 

THE MINISTER is a comedic relief

The ENSEMBLE is stocked full of vivid characters, including featured PASSENGERS, REPORTERS, PHOTOGRAPHERS, FBI AGENT 1 and FBI AGENT 2, an ANNOUNCER, an OLD LADY, and a COOK that help create the greater world of the ship and the play.
