SPEF 5th Grade Musical

Join SPUSD 5th Grade students aboard the S.S. Americana for this Youth Edition of “Anything Goes”. Anything Goes originally premiered on Broadway on November 21, 1934. This Youth Edition is a one-hour adaptation, specially tailored for elementary-aged actors. Set on a luxury liner sailing from New York to London in 1934, Anything Goes is a wacky shipboard farce featuring romance, intrigue, comical dialogue, colorful characters, tap-dancing sailors and a glorious score from Cole Porter. Song Highlights include: “You’re The Top”, “It’s De-Lovely”, “Friendship”, “I Get A Kick Out Of You” & the title hit “Anything Goes”.
