About Anything Goes (Beaumont 1987)

Anything Goes is set aboard the ocean liner S. S. American, where nightclub singer/evangelist Reno Sweeney is en route from New York to England. Her pal Billy Crocker has stowed away to be near his love, Hope Harcourt, but the problem is Hope is engaged to the wealthy Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Joining this love triangle on board the luxury liner are Public Enemy #13, Moonface Martin and his sidekick-in-crime Erma. With the help of some elaborate disguises, tap-dancing sailors and good old-fashioned blackmail, Reno and Martin join forces to help Billy in his quest to win Hope’s heart. (From Broadway.com)

Palos Verdes Peninsula High School Drama Department

PENINSULA DRAMA is an award-winning co-curricular and extra-curricular high school theatre department. Students are able to take a progressive 4-year pathway of Drama classes where they develop their confidence and collaboration skills in performance centered courses. Each classes progresses through a regimen that mixes improvisation, student-written and published performances while learning about different performance styles. A survey of the history of theatre from the Greeks up to Contemporary Artists provides the backbone for most of our performance assignments. Additionally, students receive an education in all of the technical and design elements that make a production robust.

WE TRAVEL. Over the years our department has made many trips to New York City to sightsee and attend Broadway productions. In Summer of 2022, we will be making our third journey to EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND where our students will be performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. 

WE COMPETE. Each year members of our drama classes participate (and earn trophies) through both the DTASC and CETA Theatre Festivals. In addition, we have been recognized by California Youth in Theatre and the Jerry Herman Awards.

WE PERFORM. Our department produces between 3 and 6 extra-curricular productions each year. Usually at least one musical and at least two plays. Anyone in the school can be involved in our plays either on stage or behind the scenes. 
Members of the Drama Club have their own student-directed production each year as well as other performance opportunities. Or you can join our COMEDY SPORTZ High School League team, and perform competitive improv comedy against schools all over Southern California.
