Sweet Charity follows the romantic trials and tribulations of Charity Hope Valentine, “a girl who wanted to be loved.” Charity is a dancer in New York City whose hopeful romanticism and unfailing optimism help her reach for a life beyond. When she meets Oscar, a neurotic, shy actuary seemingly from another world, will she finally find true love at last? The audience is sure to fall in love with Charity’s limitless spirit, as she lives life “hopefully ever after.”

The production is directed by Andrew Lopez and features several quickly recognized songs such as "Big Spender" and "If My Friends Could See Me Now".  Sweet Charity is produced with special arrangement with TAMS-WITMARK MUSIC LIBRARY, INC., 560 Lexington Avenue, New York, NY 10022.
