BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Source: Boca Raton Community High) — The award-winning Boca Raton Community High School Drama Department presents Sweet Charity, a romantic comedy, on March 1-4, 2018. Be transported to the magical and groovy world of the 1960s! This is a show not to be missed!
This musical centers on Charity Hope Valentine, a dancer at the seedy Fandango ballroom. Even though she is endlessly exploited by the men around her and has suffered through a series of bad relationships, Charity lives up to her name and remains optimistic for the future.
Charity soon finds herself trapped in an elevator with a claustrophobic man named Oscar. They escape unscathed, and Oscar offers to take Charity to the Rhythm of Life Church. After meeting the leader of the Rhythm hippies, Charity and Oscar realize there is more to life than their work.
As Charity and Oscar fall in love, Charity fears that if she tells Oscar about her occupation as a dance hall hostess, he will reject her. He is the first genuine man she’s met in a long time, so in order to stay with him, she lies. Inevitably, Oscar finds out.
At the end of the musical, it is uncertain how the drama between Charity, Oscar, and the rest of the characters will unfold. Come watch Sweet Charity to find out!
