Amanda Harrison is swapping her broomstick for a pair of tap shoes. She is about to take the lead in a revival of the 1930s Cole Porter classic Anything Goes.
Along with Harrison, the cast includes Todd McKenney, Anne Wood, Christie Whelan, Christy Sullivan, Alex Rathgeber, Wayne Scott Kermond and John O’May.
Harrison says she’s delighted to be reunited with McKenney, playing Sweeney’s romantic interest, stuffy Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Their last big outing was with the tour of the original production of The Boy From Oz in 1998, with Harrison as Liza Minnelli opposite McKenney’s Peter Allen.
Anything Goes is at the State Theatre, Melbourne, July 20-24.
