Classic Broadway musical 'Sweet Charity' coming to the Davis Theatre March 13

Posted: Wednesday, 05 March 2014

MONTGOMERY - The national tour of the Tony Award-winning musical "Sweet Charity" will come to Montgomery for one night only for a performance at Troy University's Davis Theatre for the Performing Arts on Thursday, March 13, at 7 p.m.

"Sweet Charity" is a tender, poignant and funny look at the adventures, or rather misadventures, in the ways of love encountered by the gullible and guileless Charity Valentine—an unlucky soul who always gives her heart and her earnings to the wrong man. The tuneful score by Cy Coleman and Dorothy Fields includes hits such as "Hey, Big Spender," "Rhythm of Life," "I'm A Brass Band" and "If My Friends Could See Me Now."

This classic Broadway musical premiered in 1966 and won five Tony Awards. It also ran in the West End as well as having revivals and international productions.

Single tickets for the performance are on sale now and range in price from $25-$50. To purchase tickets, contact the theatre office at (334) 241-9567. Tickets may also be purchased online for an additional fee on the "Subscriber Series" page of the website: www.troy.edu/davistheatre.

The night of the show, the Davis Theatre will be giving away a door prize of a two-night stay at the Hampton Inn and Suites in downtown Montgomery, two free tickets to the Theatre's next show—The Water Coolers—and a free limousine ride from Touch of Class Limousine and Transport.

The Davis Theatre is located in downtown Montgomery at 251 Montgomery Street. Office hours are Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday, 8 a.m. to noon.

The "Sweet Charity" performance is sponsored by Viamedia and Hampton Inn and Suites Downtown Montgomery.

The Davis Theatre season will conclude on Tuesday, April 22, with "The Water Coolers."
