Sweet Charity (by Cy Coleman, Dorothy Fields, Neil Simon) is the first musical to be produced by the Nottingham Playhouse in more than 10 years and forms a key highlight of Adam Penford’s first season with the theatre.

Artistic director of Nottingham Playhouse Adam Penford said:

“This story of a spirited, working-class woman who refuses to give up on life and love is life-affirming and perfect for Nottingham Playhouse. I’m thrilled that we’re bringing such a talented and prodigious cast and creative team from the West End to the East Midlands. Rebecca is an Olivier Award-winning talent and was born to play Charity.

“Musicals are one of the most popular genres of theatre in this country and we’re so proud to be creating a home-grown musical production. The scale of Sweet Charity is enormous and will give our excellent in-house teams a chance to showcase their incredible skills; from costumes and sets, to lighting and sound."
