Sixty Alta high school students are busy preparing for the musical Anything Goes. The musical will hit the stage Nov. 10-12 at the Roxy Theater.
Karen Rogers is in her second year of directing the school musical and said things have been going really good.
"I have a talented group to work with," Rogers said. "The kids are very active and involved in everything so they've been busy."
The cast was chosen on Sept. 14 and the students have been in full swing since Sept. 20. They have built the set and have been practicing three times a week at 6:45 a.m.
"It takes a lot of hard work, but it's been fun," Christian Hayworth said. "The mornings haven't been as bad as I thought and everyone has been getting along great."
Hayworth plays the role of heroine Hope Harcourt. Joining Hayworth in the other leading roles are Kristy McGowan, Jillian Carstens, Justin Walsh, Derek Radke and David Gregg.
Anything Goes is an age-old tale of Boy-Meets-Girl and the complications that come along with it put on the stage.
Hero and heroine, Billy Crocker and Hope Harcourt, meet at an overcrowded party one hot summer night in the early '30s. Unfortunately, Hope slips away into the night without giving her name and address to Billy.
