Anything Goes takes place on board the luxury liner S.S. American where nightclub singer/evangelist Reno Sweeney is en route to England. Her pal Billy Crocker has stowed away to be near his love Hope Harcourt, who is engaged to someone she doesn't love. 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).
