Take a doo-wop and Motown music-filled journey through the streets of Skid Row to a struggling flower shop where meek worker Seymour has discovered an exotic plant that makes him an overnight sensation. One problem: the plant apparently craves human blood. This campy classic -- one of the longest-running shows in off-Broadway history -- was based on a '60s B-film and later made into an '80s blockbuster starring Rick Moranis and Steve Martin. Relive delightfully dark tunes like "Somewhere That's Green" and "Suddenly, Seymour" as the nerdy-but-lovable underdog romances his sweetheart and fights the monstrous plant -- which, it turns out, is actually an alien intent on world domination.

Ahoy! The award-winning Foothill Music Theatre presents the madcap nautical adventure Anything Goes, an uproarious musical comedy featuring the toe-tapping tunes of Cole Porter. After stowing away aboard the S.S. American on a cross-Atlantic cruise, love-struck Billy Crocker hopes to win back the favor of heiress Hope Harcourt before she marries the stuffy Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. With the help of the evangelist nightclub singer Reno Sweeney and the second-rate mobster Moonface Martin (aka Public Enemy #13), not to mention the tap-dancing Fallen Angels Quartet, Billy soon learns that it’s sink or swim when it comes to love.
Anything Goes spotlights Cole Porter’s de-loveliest hits, including “Friendship,” “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “Blow, Gabriel, Blow,” “You’re the Top,” “It’s Delovely,” and the classic titular song “Anything Goes.” Award-winning director Jay Manley helms the seafaring shenanigans with musical direction by Catherine Snider and choreography by Dottie Lester-White.
