As you can see a big difference in location of songs and characters. Reno's the female lead in both and hope in romantic lead. Billy is still male lead, with Lord Evelyn and moonface as the secondary leads.

If you can think of audition songs, advice, opionions on the show, or any other things regarding Anything Goes, here's the place to tell it.

All Shook Up; Natalie... Harvey; Myrtle Mae Simmons... The Sound Of Music; Elsa Schrader... Steel Magnolias;Shelby Eatenton... Dear Edwina; Katie Spoonapple... Cinderella Wore Combat Boots; Godzella... The Wizard Of Oz...Suessical
