All aboard for Ventnor Theatre Group’s saucy and splendid production of COLE PORTER’s classic Broadway musical ‘ANYTHING GOES’. As the S.S. American heads out to sea, two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love… proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise, and some good old-fashioned blackmail. Peppering this hilariously bumpy ride are some of musical theatre’s most memorable standards, including ‘I Get a Kick out of You,’ ‘It’s De-Lovely,’ and of course, ‘Anything Goes.’

Based on author Eve Ensler’s ‘Vagina Interviews’ conducted with women from all around the world, this hilariously witty and moving collection of tales give voice to a chorus of lusty, outrageous, poignant, brave and thoroughly human stories. As sharp as ‘Sex and the City’, as unmissable as ‘Friends’ and as funny as ‘Smack the Pony’, this riotous evening is the ultimate girls (and boys!) night out. Join us for a fun-filled evening to raise money for The Island Women’s Refuge.
