If you’re in need of a great date night or a fun girls’ night out, we’ve got theater tickets with your name on them. A Broadway revival of “Anything Goes” sails into the Walton Arts Center on Tuesday, April 9, 2013 at 7 p.m.  We’re giving away TWO tickets to the opening night performance plus a dinner gift card at Hammontree’s, just steps away from the theater.

ABOUT THE SHOW: This show is about a ship, the S. S. American, heading out to sea. Once it sails, etiquette and the rules get tossed overboard as two couples find love with a little help from a crew of singing sailors, Public Enemy No. 13 and some good old-fashioned AnythingGoes-Posterblackmail. Tony Award-winning actress Rachel York plays the star of the show, nightclub singer Reno Sweeney.

Some of the songs featured in this musical include “You’re the Top,” “Anything Goes,” and “I Get a Kick Out of You.”

Here’s a list of the available show dates and times:

  • Tuesday, April 9, 7pm
  • Wednesday, April 10, 7pm
  • Thursday, April 11, 7pm
  • Friday, April 12, 8pm
  • Saturday, April 13, 2pm
  • Saturday, April 13, 8pm
  • Sunday, April 14, 2pm

ABOUT THE FOOD:  If you haven’t eaten at Hammontree’s you are missing OUT. These grilled cheese sandwiches are definitely not what we’re serving up to the kids at home.

Hammontree’s also has gourmet hot dogs (for example, the Aloha Dog has smoked mozzarella and chicken sausage with grilled pineapple, jalapenos, teriyaki sauce and pepper jack on a Scali roll) and soups. They’ve also got sensational salads, classic melts — if you don’t like all that fancy stuff — and amazing desserts.

The atmosphere at Hammontree’s is really fun and they have outside seating. It’s on West Avenue, just around the corner from Dickson Street.
