Hapless but unflappable Charity Hope Valentine desperately seeks love in New York City in the 1960s. In this exuberant, groovy, hilarious musical comedy, Charity tries again and again to find her dream and make something of herself. Sweet Charity captures all the energy, humor, and heartbreak of Life in the Big City for an unfortunate but irrepressible optimist. The musical features popular hits like “Big Spender,” “If My Friends Could See Me Now,” “I’m a Brass Band” and “Baby, Dream Your Dream.” CCM’s production showcases a new set design by alumnus Joshua Gallagher (MFA Stage Design, ’21).

“A show that puts women in the forefront as we watch Charity navigate life in New York, looking for love. It is a look back at the ’60s with great numbers like “Big Spender” and “The Frug” a big number that happens in a dance club.” – Diane Lala, director
