    Sweet Charity

    Easter Week 1

    Sweet Charity tells the story of Charity Hope Valentine - "a girl who wanted to be loved" - who works as a dance hostess in the seedy Fan-Dango Ballroom while hoping in vain to meet the man of her dreams. Dumped - and ducked in the lake - by the preening Charlie, she is picked up by the film star Vittorio Vidal at the fashionable Pompeii Club, but ends up spending the night hiding in his wardrobe.

    Trying to find culture at the YMCA, Charity meets the nervous Oscar. Despite a bad start when they’re trapped in the lift, their relationship starts to blossom. Will the Fickle Finger of Fate be kind to Charity this time? The Pied Pipers return to their original venue of the ADC to present this witty and touching show, featuring songs such as I Love To Cry At Weddings, If My Friends Could See Me Now, There’s Gotta Be Something Better Than This, the raunchy Big Spender and the show-stopping Rhythm Of Life.
