Piedmont Theatre to present ‘Anything Goes’




Join the Piedmont College theatre and music departments aboard the SS American as they combine for the rollicking musical adventure “Anything Goes” at the Swanson Center for Performing Arts in Demorest.

Hop aboard this ocean liner bound from New York to London and laugh at the quintessential gangster, Moonface Martin (known as public enemy #13), as he assists the stowaway Billy Crocker on 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. Piedmont Theatre Department Chair Bill Gabelhausen directs this version of the show by Howard Lindsay and Russell Crouse.

The musical, which introduced such songs as "Anything Goes," "You're the Top," and "I Get a Kick Out of You,” sets sail at 7:30 p.m., Oct. 4–6, and 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 7. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. Piedmont faculty, staff, and students are admitted free.  Ticket reservations can be made in advance online here, by phone at 706-778-3000 ext 1355, or by email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
