Audiences can expect romance, shipboard shenanigans and Cole Porter classics when “Anything Goes” sails into the Fort Findlay Playhouse, presented with arrangement by Tams Witmark music library.

Performances run April 26 to 30, May 3 to 5 and May 10 to 13. All shows begin at 8 p.m., with the exception of a Sunday matinee at 5 p.m. Tickets are $15 and go on sale April 16. They can be reserved by phone at 567-525-3636, online at www.fortfindlayplayhouse.org or in person at the playhouse box office at 300 W. Sandusky St.

With an original book by P.G. Wodehouse, Guy Bolton, Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse (a Wall of Famer at the Marathon Center who was born in Findlay) with music and lyrics by Cole Porter, the story is set in the early 1930s.

It turns out that Hope is Billy’s long-lost love, but she’s engaged to a prosperous Englishman, Lord Evelyn Oakleigh (George Rustemyer).

The story reaches its conclusion through a series of comedic twists and turns buoyed by Porter’s songs, including “Let’s Misbehave,” “You’re The Top,” “I Get a Kick Out of You” and the title track.
