GLASWEGIANS should get ready to put their hands in their pockets as classic musical Sweet Charity comes to town.
The show is being brought to Eastwood Park Theatre next month by south side theatre group Eastwood Entertainers.
With the original 1966 Broadway run picking up a dozen Tony nominations, the group say Sweet Charity is a must-see production.
The story follows Charity, an ever-hopeful dance hall hostess who is trying to escape the confines of her social situation.
Consistently unlucky in love, she embarks on a series of madcap relationships in an attempt to find her soul mate.
The production features classic numbers such as There’s Got To Be Something Better Than This and If My Friends Could See Me Now.
It also boasts the song that launched Shirley Bassey’s career, Big Spender.
Sweet Charity enjoys an unusual cast for musical theatre, with a solo lead female unaccompanied by a man.
Eastwood Entertainers vice president Frances Rowan said: “Following on the success of Hello Dolly last year, Sweet Charity will not disappoint.
“Starring the very talented Katie Hart portraying an effervescent Charity, and an experienced cast who are loving every minute of rehearsals, we can’t wait to share this show with an audience.”
Sweet Charity is on at Eastwood Park Theatre from Tuesday, May 1 to Saturday May 5. Tickets cost £10-£12 and are available at 638 1483.
