(LAMBERTVILLE, NJ) – Now on stage at Music Mountain Theatre (MMT) in Lambertville, New Jersey for a three-weekend run (May 24 – June 9) is Sweet Charity, the classic 1966 musical, will be the seventh mainstage show of MMT’s 2024 season.

With music by Cy Coleman, lyrics by Dorothy Fields, and a book by Neil Simon, Sweet Charity is famous for the Bob Fosse choreography of the 1960s, where the audience is introduced to the world of taxi dancers and seedy New York City clubs.

Follow the romantic trials and tribulations of Charity Hope Valentine, “a girl who wanted to be loved.” Though her job as a taxi dancer at the Fandango Ballroom may be decidedly undesirable, Charity’s hopeful romanticism and unfailing optimism lift her out of her circumstances and help her reach for a life beyond bad relationships and barely making ends meet.


With iconic musical numbers such as “Big Spender,” “If My Friends Could See Me Now,” and “There’s Gotta Be Something Better Than This,” audiences are destined to fall in love with Charity’s limitless spirit as she lives life “hopefully ever after,” with the vocal and dancing talent that only MMT can offer.

MMT’s production of Sweet Charity stars Jaimie Geddes as Charity Hope Valentine, Patrick Lavery as Oscar Lindquist, the neurotic, shy actuary who might just be the true love Charity has been searching for, Jill Gibilisco and Eva Guasconi was Nickie and Helene, Charity’s fellow dancers and closest confidants, and John Fischer as Herman, owner of the Fandango Ballroom.

Sweet Charity will run on the MMT stage from May 24th–June 9th, with 8:00 pm evening performances on Fridays and Saturdays and 3:00 pm matinee performances on Saturdays and Sundays.
