IODS Theatre Company return to the New Wolsey again this year following last summer’s triumphant run of NODA award winning ‘Fiddler on the Roof’, this time with the smash hit musical ‘Sweet Charity’. Hapless but unflappable, Charity Hope Valentine desperately seeks love in New York City in the 1960s. In this exuberant, groovy, hilarious musical comedy, Charity tries again and again to find her dream and make something of herself.

With a fantastic score by Cy Coleman, sparkling lyrics by Dorothy Fields, hilarious book by Neil Simon and famously originally choreographed by Bob Fosse, Sweet Charity captures all the energy, humour, and heartbreak of Life in the Big City for an unfortunate but irrepressible optimist. Musical numbers include: “Big Spender,” “If My Friends Could See Me Now,” “I’m a Brass Band” and “The Rhythm of Life”.
