(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Lights, camera, action!

Three Central High School seniors are setting sail for their final performance of the year with "Anything Goes."

"This musical is really special to me because it's a grand ole time and it's just an opportunity to have a 'last hoorah' type show," Zachary Reinert, Central High School senior said.

"It's kind of a place for me to come out of my comfort zone, I definitely get to be who I want to be on stage, I don't have to conform," Lexie Bryson, Central High School senior said.

"Anything Goes" originally debuted in the 1930's and is a well-known Broadway classic but now it has made its way across Central's stage, after two months of hard work and preparation.

"This production has been a lot of work for me actually because I have to maintain a British accent throughout the entire thing which is something I had to work on," Reinert said.

As seniors they all share a common bond-hoping to make a lasting impressinon on Central's Theater Department for years to come, before the final curtain call of high school.

"Not only that it's my senior year and it's kind of the last big show that I get to do at Central, this show is really upbeat and it's a lot different from shows that we've done in the past and has a whole lot of dancing, which is a lot of fun for a lot of us," Bryson said.

"This show is a champagne musical, it's fun, it's bubbly, and I think we're a champagne class. We like to have fun, sometimes too much fun and we want to end on a high note, that's what we want to go for," William Gentry, Central High School senior said.

"Anything Goes" will be performed at 7 p.m. Friday night as well as Saturday, November 4.

The production will also be shown next weekend, November 10 and 11 at Central High School.

Tickets purchased online are $8 and tickets purchased the night of the show are $10.
