Sweet Charity presented by Hingham Civic Music Theatre
Tickets are available at the door for all shows - cash or check only at the door.

NOTE: due to mature subject matter this show is not recommended for children.

Charity Hope Valentine is employed as a hostess at a New York dance hall in the late 1960's. Inside the Fan-Dango Ballroom, streetwise hostesses often share their cynical advice about love and, occasionally, their long abandoned dreams with Charity while Herman, the dance-hall manager the girls affectionately call "Der Fuhrer", makes sure the customers get what they've paid for.

Outside the dance hall, Charity's innocent vulnerability is repeatedly taken advantage of by con artists, panhandlers, and even a boyfriend. Charity does manage a fleeting glimpse of fame when she unexpectedly spends the night in the closet of Italian screen idol, Vittorio Vidal, while he reconciles with his beautiful jet-set girlfriend.

Charity's real chance for happiness comes when she is trapped in an elevator with claustrophobic tax accountant, Oscar Lindquist.  Romance ensues, only to falter when Oscar discovers Charity's true occupation and dating history.

Through trials and tribulations, sweet Charity continues searching for love, wide-eyed and hopeful.
