Anything Goes this Weekend. Get your ticket for “Anything Goes.” The Dunwoody Wildcat Theater opens the show on Friday with shows through the weekend — March 28-29 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 30 at 2 p.m.

The comedy tells of the madcap antics aboard the ocean liner S.S. American bound from New York to London.

Nightclub singer and evangelist Reno Sweeney is on board with pal Billy Crocker who has stowed away to be near his love Hope Harcourt. Problems arise because Hope is engaged to Lord Evelyn Oakleigh.

The love triangle becomes more entangled with the antics of Moonface Martin. 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.

Ticket prices at $15 for adults and $10 for students. Tickets can be purchased online at showtix4u.com.

Remember these tunes? Like Springsteen’s “Glory Days?”

The Fifty Plus Productionscommunity theater group at the MJCCA will take it on with “Glory Days: The Music You Grew Up With” opening tonight with a collection of songs from the ‘50s forward.

Its cast — all 50 or over — is directed by George Fox and the show is produced by Sandy Ferko. Many members of the cast worked with Fox more than 30 years ago at local synagogues productions.

“We hoped to get at least 20 participants, but more than 50 came to audition, “ said Fox. “The cast now numbers 35. We have nine wonderful crew members plus an orchestra of aged 50+ musicians.”

The show runs March 26-31 at the Marcus Jewish Community Center with ticket prices ranging from $12 student to $25 adult.
