As the next production of their 51st Season in Barboursville, Four County Players will present ANYTHING GOES, opening March 8 on the Mainstage.

ANYTHING GOES features Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter, Original Book by P.G. Wodehouse & Guy Bolton and Howard Lindsay & Russel Crouse, with a New Book by Timothy Crouse & John Weidman.

When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention head out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love - proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, a comical disguise, and some good old-fashioned blackmail. This classic musical has been updated with a fantastic new book (2022), but ANYTHING GOES still features Cole Porter's most joyful score, including "I Get A Kick Out of You," "You're the Top," and, of course, the show-stopping title song. After more disguises, ploys, confessions, mistaken identities, and marriage proposals, all done to toe tapping music, how will everything work out? Who knows? Anything goes!
