DALLAS (SMU): The Division of Theatre at Southern Methodist University’s Meadows School of the Arts will present the Cole Porter musical Anything Goes from Jan. 23-27 in the Margo Jones Theatre of the Owen Arts Center, 6101 Bishop Blvd. on the SMU campus. Parking is available at Hillcrest and Binkley and in the garage beneath the Meadows Museum. Show times are 8 p.m. Wed.-Sat. and 2 p.m. Sat. & Sun. Tickets are $10 for adults, $6 for seniors and $5 for students/SMU faculty and staff. For more information, call the Meadows Ticket Office at 214-768-2787.

Considered by many theater historians to be the quintessential 1930s musical, Anything Goes is a fast-paced comedy of romance and mayhem aboard a luxury liner traveling from New York to England. The musical introduced such now-classic Cole Porter songs as “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “You’re the Top” and “Anything Goes.”

The play will be directed by Russell Parkman and Sara Romersberger, assistant professors of theatre at the Meadows School of the Arts. Mr. Parkman has an M.F.A. in scenic design from Yale and has designed productions for theaters in the U.S., Norway and Colombia. Ms. Romersberger has degrees in theatre education and dance, and she earned a Certificate of Mime/Movement from Ecole Jacques Lecoq in Paris, France. Ms. Romersberger has choreographed more than 40 university and professional productions throughout the country. Her most recent credits include directing Tripping the Light Fantastic for the Festival of Independent Theaters and choreographing fights, dances and physical comedy for The Shakespeare Festival of Dallas.

The 2001-2002 theatre season of SMU’s Meadows School of the Arts is sponsored by The Dallas Morning News.
