Joining this love triangle are Public Enemy #13, Moonface Martin and his sidekick in crime Erma. With the help of elaborate disguises, tap-dancing sailors and blackmail, Reno and Moonface join forces to help Billy in his quest to win Hope's heart.

The playing schedule for Anything Goes is as follows: Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM, with matinees on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 2PM (February 27th through March 11th).
