Paul Friesen and Suzie Frew-Harris star in ANYTHING GOESStarting on August 24, Gloriana Musical Theatre presents Cole Porter’s ANYTHING GOES at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $35 for the Opening Night Gala, which includes the show, food, and beverages. Advance tickets are on sale at Harvest Market and Tangents in Fort Bragg, and at Out of This World in Mendocino. One hour before each performance tickets are on sale, if available, at Eagles Hall Theatre, 210 North Corry (at Alder) in Fort Bragg. 707-964-SHOW.

One of the things that is surprising about the Mendocino Coast is the amount of musical talent in the area. I’d have to suppose that our Per-Capita Musicality Quotient (PCMQ) is significantly higher than average. Gloriana Musical Theatre is one of two opera companies on the Coast, and they focus on light opera and musical theatre. They also do Christmas caroling to raise money for scholarships, something in which I join them. This show promises to be excellent, based on having sung with the mail lead, Paul Friesen. He has one of those strong, smooth bass voices that is as smooth as silk, and he is amazingly expressive through his voice. I’ve learned a lot by singing next to him in the choir, and it’s always a pleasure just hear him singing. Cole Porter is exactly the kind of music to bring out his best qualities, too.

The show runs through August 24th through October 7th, and the performances are on Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30 pm, with a Sunday matinee at 2. Check it out!
