The musical introduced such songs as Anything Goes, You’re on Top, and I Get a Kick Out of You.

Performance times are 7pm each night and feature a large ensemble. Gracie Lackore will play Hope Harcourt, Sarah Hovinga plays Reno Sweeney, Ian Bennet plays Billy Crocker and Micaiah Krutsinger plays “Moonface” Martin in the show.
