Sweet Charity

Have you ever known a girl who wanted something so badly, that she tried too hard to get it?

Performance Preparation Academy present Sweet Charity which follows the misadventures of love encountered by the gullible and guileless Charity Hope Valentine; a woman who always gives her heart and her dreams to the wrong man! Though she dreams of meeting the right man and settling down, she keeps lavishing her affections on losers.

Her luck starts to change when she meets a suave Italian movie star, but things really start to look rosy when she runs into a nerdy but sweet guy in a night-school elevator. Could this finally be her Prince (more or less) Charming?

Sweet Charity features many musical hits including Hey, Big Spender, If My Friends Could See Me Now and The Rhythm of Life.

Hey, Big Spender… Spend a little time with me!
