Anyone but Me - One4Review
Take a young angst ridden teenager, longing to be in with the in crowd but not quite on the ball. Sammy McGowan as Joseph Schmelnick is this young man, the bright spark on his horizon is the fact that he is going to summer camp where he can invent a new persona. Summer camp is all he wants it to be, he is king of the crowd, has the girls falling over him but is he happy. The other guys start to dislike him because of the girls hanging round him. The only girl he wants to talk to thinks him an airhead. why does he always want to be ‘Anyone but me’. This cleverly written musical brings out the best and worst in teenagers. The cast some of which play two characters oozing enthusiasm and all have good voices and are able to cope with the choreography. An interesting fun show which deserves more than its five presentations on the fringe. **** Cast; Anastasia Barron, Cara Bickers, Cassidy Boyd, Adam Gold, Max Gray, Taylor Heisley-Cook, Anthony Landsberg, Sammy McGowan, Sammy Perlmutter, Andrew Schein and Sammi Wyman. Piano Accompaniment by Billy Goulston.
