Characters m. Anything GoesrocVi the boat
Song, dance, and laughter filled
Jones Auditorium throughout the
weekends of October 20-23 and 27-30.
Meredith students poured in for a full
two hours of entertainment as the ac
tors and actresses brought life to the
stage during their performance of
Anything Goes, a musical comedy with
music and lyrics by Cole Porter.
Director John Milne, along with
the music director, Meredith’s own
Paul Potorti, worked together to make
the show begin and end with a bang.
The production was set aboard a
cruise ship, and the audience was
slowly woven into a web of lovers and
villains as they became aware of Billy
Crocker’s struggle to be with Hope
Harcourt, the woman of his dreams.
The conflia, which arises as Billy
becomes aware that Hope is already
engaged to Sir Evelyn Oakleigh, is only
complicated as he becomes closely
involved with Moonface Martin, a vil

small, somewhat soft-spoken charac
Laura Morgan as Hope
Harcourt, a petite and
proper young woman.
Their voices blended
together and seemed to
become one as they
sang “It’s Delovely” and

Although these two
characters did an out
standing job, Gary L.
Williams as Sir Evelyn
and Blair Byrd as
Bonnie, who are both
added great laughter to
the set with their Brit
ish and up-state New
York accents and airs.
Both did wonderful jobs present
ing the stereotypes which we associ
ate with the English and the North.
Their dry sense of humor plays well as
they both appear oblivious to the world
No actor or actress stole the show,
though, like Turly Ager as Reno
Sweeney and Rick Meadows as
Ager’s strong voice and graceful
stage presence were perfect matches
for her role as a flashy show-girl, and
Meadows could not have played the
clueless more perfectly.
Meadows sent laughter soaring
throughout the audience with his fa
cial expressions and overall appear
ance. He was a large, gangly man,
which made his chararter seem that
much more dense.
Without the music from the or
chestra, which bellowed from the up
per deck of the ship, the performance
would have been a flop.
Not only was the music great, but
also the dancing was outstanding. The
dancers seemed to serve more as a
backdrop, though, rather than perform
ers, as they were only really given one
chance to show the audience what
they were made of. This was disap
pointing because their intense dance
routine was definitely a show-stopper.
More dancing would have been a great
asset to the show.
Anything Goes was not only a
great change of pace from the usual

Since Meredith productions are free
to students, I cannot encourage you
enough to attend the shows provided
right here on campus.
I can assure you that there is great
talent right under our noses just wait
ing to be discovered.
