Piedmont College sings Sweet Charity
1004-GO-SWEET-CHARITY
Musical director Donna Bunn James leads a rehearsal for the upcoming musical comedy ‘Sweet Charity’ at Piedmont College.

 “Do you want to have fun? How’s about a few laughs?”

Piedmont College has just the show for you with “Sweet Charity,”  which will play Oct. 2-5 on the Swanson Center Mainstage in Demorest.

The bright and sophisticated musical comedy follows Charity, a girl who wants to be loved so much she loses sight of who she is. Set in the all too real world of Times Square, the people who pass through Charity’s life are as deceptively charming a group as has ever swept across any stage. With a musical score by Cy Coleman and Dorothy Fields, “Sweet Charity” features show-stoppers such as “If My Friends Could See Me Now,” “The Rhythm of Life,” and “Big Spender.”

Directed by Piedmont theatre professor Bill Gabelhausen, “Sweet Charity” is a fun, lighthearted musical comedy set in the late 1960s. It made its splashing Broadway premiere in 1966 and was nominated for nine Tony Awards. It was adapted for the screen in 1969.

Performances are set for 7:30 p.m. Oct. 2-4 and 2 p.m. Oct. 5.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. Piedmont College faculty, staff, and students are admitted free. Tickets can be purchased at www.piedmont.edu/fa or by calling 706-778-8500 ext. 1355.
