Tal­ent Ma­chine Co. presents ‘Sweet Char­ity’

Record Observer - - Arts & Entertainment -

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.
