Doug Simons as Billy Crocker and Anna Jurek as Hope Harcourt, both students of West Middle School Drama Club, perform song and dance numbers from the show "Anything Goes" for residents of Atria Marland Place.

Residents at Atria Marland Place were recently treated to an afternoon of Cole Porter tunes, courtesy of the West Middle School Drama Club.

Friday, the cast of the school's production of "Anything Goes" visited the Stevens Street assisted living facility. Producer Jean Mara noted the crew also performed for the seniors last year when they performed selections from "Oklahoma."

Set in the early 1930s, the musical follows an American ship departing for England with a diverse set of passengers | including Wall Street businessman Elisha Whitney, played by Tim Gibson; his stowaway assistant Billy Crocker, played by Doug Simons; debutante Hope Harcourt, played by Anna Jurek; her mother, played by Katie Mara; her English fiance Sir Evelyn Oakleigh, played by Conrad Krendal-Clark; gangsters Moonface Martin, played by Bobby Hawes, and Bonnie, played by Elsie Washburn; and evangelist/lounge singer Reno Sweeny, played by Chelsea Frei.

Other performances of the play are scheduled for May 11 and 12, 7 p.m., at West Middle School.
