Congratulations to the cast and crew of “Anything Goes” for putting on a fantastic performance this past weekend. Joanne Cromley and Lorrie Staivisky once again directed a group of talented students who thoroughly entertained their audience. I forgot to mention in last week’s column that years ago Lea Ann Hawk performed the part of Reno Sweeney in this supreme musical. She was thrilled to sing those great songs back then, and we all so enjoyed hearing them again this weekend. All of the students did a wonderful job and congrats on a job well done!
