If you know the name PG Wodehouse at all, chances are you associate it with Jeeves, the gentleman's gentleman.

But, of course, he wrote about a whole lot of other eggs, beans and crumpets – Ukridge, Psmith, Lord Emsworth, the vast Mulliner family and, in association with his good friend Guy Bolton, a number of musical comedies – some thirty-three of them.

Among several others, in collaboration with Cole Porter, Wodehouse and Bolton wrote the book for Anything Goes, a charming story, very typical of Wodehouse and the period (1934) which showcases some of Cole Porter's best and most iconic music – I get a Kick Out of You, You're The Top, Blow, Gabriel, Blow and naturally, the eponymous Anything Goes.

The plot is set on an ocean liner, the SS American, is convoluted, involves Public Enemey Number 13, Lord Evelyn Oakleigh, a Wall Street broker (somewhat surprisingly to modern eyes, he is not the villain), a beautiful heiress and a great deal of pretending to be someone else, misunderstandings and a damn good night out for the audience.

This December this frothy confection of song, dance and laughs is being produced by Limelight Theatre, directed and choreographed by Terry Pirlo. He is also taking the part of Billy Crocker. I hope he found someone else to take round the teas at interval, because he's going to be pretty busy.

Anything Goes runs from November the 27th to the 13th December with matinees on December the 6th and 13th. Curtain up at 8:00pm.

Tickets are $32, $27 concession and $21 children and may be booked by ringing 9571 8591 between 9am and midday, Monday to Friday, or online at the company's website .

Limelight Theatre is located on Civic Drive, Wanneroo.
