ACHS students prepare to perform classic madcap musical "Anything Goes"

Matthew Hundley / (

More than 60 ACHS students have been working throughout the spring semester to prove one thing, “Anything Goes.”
 A group of students, led by ACHS science teacher Coleman Bailey, will showcase a broad range of talents to bring together a performance of the famous 1934 play “Anything Goes,” which features the exploits of gangsters, sailors and dancers on board a trans-Atlantic voyage. 

The show will be open to the public on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, May 2 through 5. The shows on Thursday, Friday and Saturday will each begin at 7 p.m., with the Sunday show beginning at 2:30 p.m. Tickets for each show are $5, and can be purchased in advance to ensure seating, which could become an issue, as the ACHS mini-theater now has a brand-new seating structure.
