THE SS American sails into Harpenden this month for the Light Operatic Society's latest production of Cole Porter's musical comedy Anything Goes.

It is being performed from Monday, March 22, to Saturday, March 27, at Harpenden Public Halls.

The show is a vintage affair of well-known tunes and tap dancing fun set aboard the cruise liner, the SS American. A confection of debutantes, gangsters, tycoons and stowaways, Anything Goes turns back time to the 1930s.

First performed on Broadway in 1934, Anything Goes quickly became one of the longest-running musicals of the decade. It is awash with much-loved songs including I Get a Kick out of You, You're the Top, It's De-Lovely and the title number Anything Goes.
