Anything Goes

Community Theatre

CSA Director Insight:
Jacqi Loewy

Why did you choose, or how did you come to direct this show? 
I met the producers when they came to see my production of Jekyll and Hyde at French Creek. They liked my work and I knew LCMT from the great production of Into the Woods I had seen so I think it was a little bit of a mutual admiration society. The common denominators were Music Director Anthony Trifiletti and Stage Manager Julie Billinghurst and I really love working with them.

Why does the theatre scene need this production and/or another production of this show?
Because we all need some good clean laughs these days! Enough said??

Can you share some memorable moments from the rehearsal period?
We are a little short of men in this cast so watching the teenage girls grow into their "male" roles was great.  Our Sir Evelyn kept calling Plum Blossom Plum Bottom ... that's fun! Honestly, the cast had such great chemistry and was pretty drama-free (in the good sense) that nothing sticks out. It was all just easy and a good time.

What themes resonate with you about the show?
The power of love and the zaniness of humanity.

What do you hope your production has accomplished?
I know I am repeating myself, but anything that makes people laugh and hum is good for the soul.  I hope we have accomplished that.

Thank you so much Jacqi for your feedback!
