Ticket sales for the Dale County and Ozark City Schools’ musical production of “Anything Goes” starts Thursday, Jan. 14.

Tickets are on sale at the Flowers Center in Ozark each Tuesday and Thursday from 4:30 until 6:30 p.m. until the show opens Feb. 9. Additional ticket information can be obtained by calling (334) 774-0720.

The show is a story centered on the Cole Porter classic “Anything Goes.” It is the story of the age-old tale of boy-meets-girl and the complications that ensure, according to Director Margie Benson. “No musical puts it on stage better than ‘Anything Goes.’ It’s a wonder that all the romances are sorted out and disaster is averted aboard the magical ship where anything goes.”’

Michelle Shirley is the director of music and Tracy Shilabeer is the dance choreographer.

Due to COVID-19 guidelines and precautions, only half of the seating at the Flowers Center for the Performing Arts can be utilized at any one time, Benson said. “Therefore there will be five presentations over a four day period.”

Each evening performance—Feb. 9, 11, 12 and 13—begins at 7 p.m. and the matinee performance Feb. 13 begins at 1 p.m.

Admission is $15 per ticket and all seats will be reserved.

“One year after the then newly renovated Flowers Center opened in 1986, Carroll High School in Ozark presented ‘Anything Goes,’” Benson said. “All cast, chorus and crew members from the 1987 production are invited back for a short reunion prior to the evening performance Feb. 13. The reunion will begin at 6:30 p.m.”
