* The Travelling Troupe are in Barmouth next weekend.
A talented cast from the society will present the feel-good show, with both words and music by Porter, at the Town Hall from Tuesday-Saturday, April 16-20 next year.
It will be the second time in 14 years they have staged the musical, the last time being to great acclaim in 1999.
Set in the carefree days of the early 1930s, Anything Goes tells the story of the madcap antics aboard an ocean liner bound from New York to London.
Billy Crocker is a stowaway in love with heiress Hope Harcourt, who is engaged to Lord Evelyn Oakleigh.
Nightclub singer Reno Sweeney and Public Enemy Number 13 Moonface Martin aid Billy in his quest to win Hope.
The musical introduced such memorable songs as Anything Goes, You’re the Top, I Get a Kick Out of You and It’s De-Lovely.Since its 1934 debut on Broadway the musical has been revived several times in the United States and Britain and has been filmed twice.
The society has arranged a get-together on the evening of Tuesday, September 18 in the Operatic Building, at the end of the passageway which runs alongside Maxine’s off Castle Street, when the show will be introduced and prospective new members are welcome.
