Reahearsals are in full swing for an Autumn production of Cole Porter’s classic musical ‘Anything Goes’ and a local councillor has given the show a cash boost.

Nottinghamshire county councillor Philip Owen, a keen supporter of the Nottingham West Music and Drama Society, donated £500 from his divisional fund.

Gillian Williams, directing the production, welcomed the monetry boost, which she said would be used to fund the cost of hiring costumes for the show.

“Costumes are an integral part of any show but they are very expensive to hire,” she said.

“We are fortunate to have people like Cllr Owen helping us and we extend to him our sincere thanks.”

Anything Goes is set aboard the ocean liner SS American in 1930s New York.

The show is being performed at the Kimberley School between October 23 and 27. Tickets are available on 0115 9770995.
