In this MCP Youth Production, Jessica Cranshaw is a triple threat; she can't sing, act or dance (or remember to say her lines). To the relief of everyone, she is murdered during her opening night curtain call. The entire company comes under suspicion, and Lt. Frank Cioffi of the Boston Police Dept. is called in to solve the homicide. Can Cioffi solve the case, save the show, and get the girl before the curtain rises with getting offed himself? This is a musical, after all!

Anything Goes Anything Goes
August 2-4 2018
The Junior Youth perform this Cole Porter Classic. Nightclub singer/evangelist Reno Sweeney is en route from New York to England on an ocean liner. Her pal Billy Crock has stowed away to be near his love, Hope Harcourt, but the problem is Hope is engaged to the wealthy Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Joining this love triangle on board the luxury liner are Public Enemy #13 Moonface Martin, and his sidekick-in-crime Erma. With the help of elaborate disguises, tap-dancing sailors, and good ol' blackmail, Reno and Martin join forces to help Billy in his quest to win Hope's heart.
About MCP

Our Mission
The Marshall Civic Players exist to provide enjoyable and gripping live theatre to the community though stage plays and musicals that excel in every aspect of theatrical production.
The Marshall Civic Players is a group of really odd people who enjoy entertaining others. Artisans hone their improvisational skills in stagecraft to construct the sets, costumes and soundscapes that are the hallmark of an MCP productions. But all of this does not happen on its own, as if by the laws of physics each dust particle coelesced with its neighbor to ultimately form a cohesive entity. No, the Marshall Civic Players are keenly guided by a working Board of Directors that is elected from the membership.

Board meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of every month at the Franke Center. Please contact the president if you have an item you would like put on the agenda.
