Gladstone 2019 Community Musical, Anything Goes, cast announced
Gladstone Regional Council and the Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre (GECC) are pleased to announce the local cast for the Gladstone 2019 Community Musical, Anything Goes.
Gladstone Region Mayor Matt Burnett said Council was pleased to be involved with the community musical, presented by the GECC as part of its Public Programs, to support arts and cultural development in the community.
“Well done to all our residents who auditioned for roles with quite a few recognised faces among the cast, as well as some residents making their Gladstone Community Musical debut,” Councillor Burnett said.
Director Jeannine Butler said auditions had been of a very high standard with the stage production sure to be enjoyed by the community.
“The musical is a romantic comedy full of fun and high energy, certain to please the Gladstone public,” she said.
“I’m looking forward to working closely with my creative team, the GECC as producer and of course, the cast of very talented males and females.”
Councillor Cindi Bush said five community shows had been scheduled next year at the GECC for the 1987 Beaumont version of Anything Goes from February 21 to 24.
“Gladstone Region residents will be impressed by the talent of our residents linked to this production,” Cr Bush said.
Audiences will join cast members aboard the ocean liner S.S.American for romantic fun and comedy where anything goes with some elaborate disguises, tap-dancing sailors, blackmail, confessions, mistaken identities and marriage proposals.
Tickets for Anything Goes will be on sale and available at the GECC from Friday, 5 October, 2018.
