Parking is not expensive, only $3. But judging from the remote location, this parking should be free instead.

one of the best summer musiacal shows they have done.
Full of great Porter songs and Jay does a great job of directing with good set and a small but very effective orchestra..good choreography too. A perfect light summer treat.

Anything Goes was terrific! The cast is extraordinarily talented. The singing, dancing and acting were all first class professional quality. It was a wonderful evening and I recommend it to everyone.

Description

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.
