When it comes to love, even at sea, "Anything Goes"

Cole Porter classic opens April 3 at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre

INDIANAPOLIS – Get on board for some delightful and de-lovely entertainment as Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre presents the nautical musical Anything Goes starting April 3. Recently revived on Broadway, this lighthearted Cole Porter classic celebrates its 80th anniversary this year, and tap dances through May 11 at Beef & Boards.

An amusing story wrapped around one of the magical scores of native Hoosier Cole Porter, Anything Goes sends the age-old tale of boy-meets-girl out to sea aboard the ocean liner S.S. American. Young travelers fall in love at first sight, but the girl is already engaged! Throw in some disguised characters, blackmail and tap-dancing sailors, and it adds up to an upbeat production that’s the top!

Featuring songs like “Friendship,” “It’s De-Lovely,” “I Get A Kick Out Of You,” “You’re the Top,” and the title song, “Anything Goes,” this feel-good musical will have audiences tapping their toes and singing along!

Starring as Billy Crocker, a young broker in love, is Timothy Ford, who last enchanted Beef & Boards audiences as Don Lockwood in Singin’ In The Rain. Whitney Meyer, who played Cosette in Les Misérables last season, returns to the Beef & Boards stage as Hope Harcourt, the debutante engaged to marry Lord Evelyn Oakleigh, played by audience favorite Jeff Stockberger. Performing as Reno Sweeney, the nightclub singer who helps Billy, is Deb Wims, who brought audiences to their feet with her portrayal of Roxie Hart in Beef & Boards’ production of Chicago. Funnyman Jack Milo returns as Moonface Martin, a gangster and Public Enemy #13.

Anything Goes is on stage for 40 performances through May 11 in the intimate space of Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre. Tickets range from $38.50 to $63.50 and include Chef Odell Ward’s dinner buffet, prepared in-house for each performance, and select beverages. Parking is always free.

For reservations, call the Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre Box Office at 317.872.9664 anytime between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays. Discounts are available to groups of 20 or more; contact the Group Sales Department for more details.
