Children's Theater Group to Perform Musical Comedy

Release Date: 6/29/2007

Clarksville, Ark. --- The Clarksville Children's Company Advanced Performance Group will present Cole Porter's classic musical comedy Anything Goes on July 7 and July 8 on the University of the Ozarks campus.

Show times are 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 7, and 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 8, in the university’s Walton Fine Arts Center. Tickets are $7 in advance and $8 at the door. To order tickets or for more information, call 479-979-1346.

With such classic Cole Porter tunes as "I Get a Kick Out of You," "You're the Top," "Anything Goes," and "DeLovely," and a zany plot full of mistaken identities and hilarious twists, Anything Goes promises to transport audience members back to the 1930s on board a luxury ocean liner steaming from New York to London. The cast includes, among others, Caitlin Krohn as Reno Sweeney, Robert Frost as Billy Crocker, Dustin Curry as Moonface Martin, and Faith Helms as Erma LaTour.

The Clarksville Children's Company is comprised of more than 40 4th-through-12th grade advanced theater students from Johnson and Pope counties. It is entering its 11th summer of theatrical productions and is sponsored by University of the Ozarks and local businesses.
