The Piedmont College theatre and music departments will present the musical adventure “Anything Goes” this weekend at the Swanson Center for Performing Arts in Demorest.

The story takes place on an ocean liner bound from New York to London, where gangster Moonface Martin (known as Public Enemy No. 13) assists stowaway Billy Crocker in his quest to win the love of debutante Hope Harcourt.

“Anything Goes” made its debut on Broadway in 1934, with enchanting music and lyrics by Cole Porter. The musical introduced such songs as “Anything Goes,” “You’re the Top” and “I Get a Kick Out of You.”

Piedmont Theatre Department Chair Bill Gabelhausen directs this version of the show by Howard Lindsay and Russell Crouse.

Performances are set for 7:30 p.m. Oct. 4-6 and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 7. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors, free to Piedmont faculty, staff and students.
