BT Theatrical Alliance presents “Sweet Charity” - March 4-6

Have you ever known a girl who wanted something so badly, that she tried too hard to get it? Meet Charity, the girl who wants to be loved so much, that she has lost sight of who she is. Charity sings, dances, laughs and cries her way through romances with the “animal magnetism” hero, the “ultra-chic continental” hero, and the “impossible-to believe-but-he’s-better than nothing” type hero.

Her world is the all too real world of Times Square, and the people who pass through her world are as deceptively charming a group as ever swept across any stage. Cy Coleman has captured the rhythms and sounds, and Dorothy Fields the vernacular and fun of New York.

Neil Simon has a particular talent for looking at the truly amusing side of life. Wonderful musical numbers include Big Spender, If My Friends Could See Me Now, Too Many Tomorrows, There’s Gotta Be Something Better Than This, I’m a Brass Band and Baby, Dream Your Dream.  

Shows are March 4-6 at 7:30pm.  Cost is $10 for general admission, free for students.  Tickets may be purchased on-line at
