Banish those winter blues and join Axminster Operatic Society on board the liner the SS American in Cole Porter’s fabulous show Anything Goes.

This show is one of the greatest musicals of all time.

Written in 1934, Anything Goes portrays all the glitz and glamour of the age with great songs such as Anything Goes, Blow Gabriel, Blow, and All Through the Night.

Combine iconic songs with dance routines, wonderful costumes and a genuinely amusing script and you have the recipe for a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Denise Churchett, the director of Anything Goes, said: “This is the first show I have directed with Axminster Operatic Society and I am really enjoying the experience.

“We have a great and talented cast and they are working really hard to make sure that you, the audience, have a truly memorable evening.”

Anything Goes runs until Saturday, November 17, beginning at 7.30pm in the Guildhall, in Axminster.

A matinee performance is also being held on the Saturday beginning at 2.30pm.

Tickets are available from the Archway Bookshop in Axminster, telephone 01297 33595.
