The age-old tale of Boy-Meets-Girl and the complications which ensue have intrigued audiences for generations, and no musical puts it on stage better than Cole Porter’s Anything Goes. This tap happy show tells this amusing story wrapped around one of Cole Porter’s most magical scores. It’s a wonder that all the romances are sorted out and disaster is averted aboard the magical ship where Anything Goes! Opening on Broadway in 1936, Anything Goes has entertained audiences every decade since as one of the most revived shows in Broadway history and with two film adaptations both staring Bing Crosby has been enjoyed as much onscreen as onstage. Join us for this perennial CPCC Summer Theatre favorite as we tap dance our way across the deep blue sea.

The Tony Award winning farce Boeing Boeing takes us back  to the swinging 1960s to meet confirmed bachelor Bernard who couldn’t be happier with a flat in Paris and three gorgeous stewardesses all engaged to him without a clue about each other. But when a new and speedier Boeing jet throws off all of his careful planning, all three stewardesses are in town simultaneously, and catastrophe looms. In 1991 The Guinness Book of Records named Boeing Boeing the most produced French play in history. With no fewer than 5 film adaptations (French, American with Tony Curtis and Jerry Lewis, Malayalam, Telugu and Hindi), Boeing Boeing proves that laughter knows no language barriers. Come fly with us as we take a farce filled ride on Boeing Boeing this summer.
