Charity Hope Valentine is in love with the idea of finding true love, but she is stuck in a dead-end job as a dance-hall hostess for hire in 1966 New York City. She falls fast and hard for all the wrong men, in a comically unfortunate way.

Based on Federico Fellini’s screenplay for Academy Award winner Nights of Cabiria, Sweet Charity brought together Broadway legends - playwright Neil Simon and choreographer Bob Fosse. The musical comedy debuted on Broadway in 1966 starring Fosse's wife, Gwen Verdon. Shirley McClaine portrayed Charity in the 1969 movie version, while Debbie Allen and Christina Applegate are among the stars who played the title role in the 1986 and 2005 revivals, respectively.

Sweet Charity includes showstoppers such as “Big Spender,” “If My Friends Could See Me Now,” “The Rhythm of Life,” and “Rich Man’s Frug.”

SWEET CHARITY is presented by arrangement with tams-witmark

Cost: $18 adults; $15 military, seniors, students; $9 youth age 17 and under.
