TheaterWorks set to open ‘Anything Goes’ in Peoria

Cole Porter musical opens Feb. 21


“Anything Goes” opens 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 21 at TheaterWorks, 10580 N. 83rd Dr., Peoria.

The production, on the Gyder Stage, runs through March 8.

“It’s love at first sight for stowaway Billy Crocker when he sees the lovely Hope Harcourt, but is crushed to learn that she is betrothed to another,” a TheaterWorks news release sums up of the plot. “See him team up with an evangelical nightclub singer, public enemy number 13 and an array of other kooky characters to win her love in this madcap, hilarious musical comedy. Come aboard the SS American and experience music, dance, laughs, and the age-old tale of Boy Meets Girl. ‘Anything Goes’ is a hilarious shipboard romp, wrapped around one of Cole Porter’s most magical scores.”

The cast features Molly Lajoie (as Reno Sweeny), David Dickinson (Billy Crocker), Scott Hyder (Moonface Martin) and Deserae McCall (Bonnie).

Tickets $39-18 and are available at
