In September 1975, I auditioned for a part in Anything Goes.
I ended up as a singing and dancing sailor, as well as a small bit part as the "photographer". As you can tell, they must have been desperate.
All kidding aside, in spite of my performance, this play was truly electrifying and most professionally done. It is still talked about today.

While I played the photographer, I also became the Official Gateway Photographer for several years.
As I rummage thru my photos of other plays, I will post them as well. But for now, 36 years later I must pay tribute to
Anything Goes!
