Sweet CharitySweet Charity Poster

Book by Neil Simon
Music by Cy Coleman   Lyrics by Dorothy Fields
​Co-produced with the Otterbein Department of Music

Meet the ever-optimistic Charity, a hostess at a dance club, who wants to leave the world of raunchy, bump-and-grind nightclubs and start a more “respectable” life. She sings, dances, laughs and cries her way through one misadventure after the next, searching for love. Based upon Federico Fellini‘s Oscar-winning masterpiece Nights of Cabiria, Sweet Charity is one of the all-time classics of modern musical theatre. Get ready for famous tunes and high-energy dance numbers that will make you glad you decided to “spend a little time” with Charity and her crazy, frenetic friends.
