ANYTHING GOES – Tickets for Half-Price

Broadway Tour Coming to Lufkin Oct. 24 & 25

LUFKIN, TX. The award-winning National Broadway Tour of ANYTHING GOES – The Musical sails into Lufkin on October 24 & 25 with the trans-Atlantic cruise ship the S.S. American docking right on the Temple Theater stage! This revival of Cole Porter’s classic tale is sure to deliver the same joy, exuberance, and laughter that it did on the original opening night back in the 30s! On record as one of the greatest musicals in Broadway history, ANYTHING GOES makes a TWO-DAY stop on the Angelina College campus. This will be the fourth stop for this saucy, splendid new national tour. Winner of three 2011 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival, this fun-filled tale will charm you. ANYTHING GOES is proudly presented by Angelina Arts Alliance, and is sponsored by the T.L.L. Temple Foundation. This nostalgic yet freshly tooled Broadway revival will take the stage at the Temple Theater on Friday, October 24 and Saturday, October 25 at 7:30 pm with tickets ranging from $32-$43 (Premium/Box $48). If you have waited till the last minute to get tickets do not fret – as always, starting one hour before curtain at 6:30 pm all remaining tickets for each show are sold for half-price. Who doesn’t love a 50% discount?! 2014-2015 Season sponsors are First Bank and Trust East Texas and Georgia Pacific.

As the S.S. American heads out to sea, two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love aboard a hilarious ship filled with a crew of singing and dancing sailors, exotic disguises, and some good old-fashioned blackmail. Expect lots of laughs, and one of musical theater’s most delightful scores ever, featuring some of Cole Porter’s beloved classics such as “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “It’s De-lovely,” and of course, “Anything Goes.”
