This Tony Award-winning musical comedy is a warm, touching and humorous look at the trials and tribulations of Charity Hope Valentine who repeatedly gives her heart—and her savings—to the wrong men. Charity sings, dances, laughs and cries her way through one romance after another, all the while staying sweet and hopeful that someday her dreams will come true. Students from JMU’s School of Theatre and Dance will perform hits such as “Big Spender,” “Rhythm of Life,” and “If My Friends Could See Me Now.”
Q&A to follow performances on Thursday, February 26 and Sunday, March 1.
Sweet Charity is produced by arrangement with, and the music and dialogue materials furnished by TAMS-WHITMARK, Music Library Inc., 560 Lexington Aven, New York, NY 10022.
