Headlining the Autumn season for 2015 at the New Wolsey is a new actor-musician production of the classic swingin’ sixties musical SWEET CHARITY which runs from Thursday 3 to Saturday 26 September, directed by Artistic Director Peter Rowe.
Meet Charity Hope Valentine – a woman who always gives her heart and dreams… to the wrong man! Despite her dead-end job as a dance club hostess in the dubious Fandango Night Club she still manages to remain an incurable optimist. One day she meets sweet, unassuming Oscar and believes her luck has changed. But has she found true love and will all her dreams come true?
With brassy, toe tapping hits including Big Spender, If My Friends Could See Me Now, The Rhythm of Life and I’m A Brass Band, you won’t want to miss this story of a girl who just wants to be loved!
