Talent Machine Co. presents ‘Sweet Charity’
ANNAPOLIS — The Talent Machine Company production of “Sweet Charity” continues this weekend at St. John’s College Key Auditorium in Annapolis.
Charity Valentine is the eternal optimist. While working at the Fan Dango Ballroom, she has been strung along in a series of bad relationships. Nonetheless, she always holds out hope- and she seems to have finally met a decent fellow in Oscar. Concerned that he will reject her if he finds out her true profession, she lies and tells him that she works in a bank. Soon Oscar asks Charity to marry him. Unfortunately, Oscar discovers Charity’s real profession and he backs out of the marriage. Sweet Charity follows Charity’s romantic ups and downs as she remains ever-hopeful that she will ultimately find love.
The director is Caleb Williams; music director, Dennis Blair; and choreographer, Vicki Smith.
The show features a cast of 31 talented teens from all over the region, ages 13-18. The show will run Aug. 1114; Thursday, Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30 p.m., Sunday’s show is at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15 and are available online at www.tal entmachine.com at the door or by calling 410-956-0512.
