Santa Barbara School of Performing Arts veteran singer and actress Dauri Kennedy and longtime choreographer and revered youth theatrical producer Jessica Hambright have announced their production of Anything Goes June 1-2 at the Marjorie Luke Theatre.
“The school exists to nurture, motivate and build confidence in our community’s youth through the use of contemporary and classic theatrical works,” said Kennedy, co-artistic director and vocal coach.
Co-director Hambright added, “We are thrilled to bring this high-energy and laugh-out-loud piece to Santa Barbara. The show is a terrific display of talent and hard work, and will not disappoint any member of your family.”
The show is directed and choreographed by Hambright, with Kennedy as vocal director. Also on board are local tap-dancing sensation Tamara Norton and recent star of Becky’s New Car Josh Jenkins as theatrical and comedic coach.
