South Pasadena Educational Foundation (SPEF) Presents: Anything Goes Youth Edition!

January 6, 2023 – South Pasadena Educational Foundation and Upstage Theatre Schools present the South Pasadena Unified School District production of Anything Goes Youth Edition!

  • Saturday, February 4th, 4:00 pm (Blue Cast)
  • Saturday, February 4th, 7:30 pm (Red Cast)
  • Sunday, February 5th, 2:00 pm (Red Cast)

Tickets start at $10, and a Live Stream Package is available by donation.
