Liverpool Theatre School is set to put on a spectacular performance of Sweet Charity at The Epstein Theatre, which will see final year musical theatre students entertain the audience with showstoppers such as ‘Big Spender’, ‘Rhythm of Life’ and ‘If My Friends Could See Me Now’.
The classic musical comedy, with a score by Cy Coleman and Dorothy Fields, tells the story of hopeless romantic, Charity Hope Valentine, a New York taxi dancer who embarks on a series of disastrous relationships during her quest to find love.
Speaking on the show, Maxine Ellis, Principal at Liverpool Theatre School, said: “Sweet Charity is an iconic musical theatre production, which even though its Broadway premiere took place in 1966, is still very much relevant today. It’s a story about heartbreak, optimism and resilience, with a sprinkling of glitz and glamour.
“The musical comedy is both hugely entertaining to watch and challenging to perform, so it calls for real talent and skill from our final year students who have all been working incredibly hard to make sure they do the show justice at the wonderful Epstein Theatre. It really is a fabulous show and I would urge any fans of musical theatre to join us for a thoroughly enjoyable evening.”
