Cllr Kieran McCarthy will direct Sweet Charity, the musical at the Firkin Crane in early June. Open auditions for the newly formed Cork City Musical Society will take place at the Firkin Crane, on Saturday 21 February and Saturday 28 February, between 1pm and 4pm. Those interested should prepare a song of your choice. Bring sheet music if possible. All applicants must be over 17 years of age. Musical direction is by David O’Sullivan and choreography is by Aileen Coffey.
Sweet Charity tells the story of dance hall hostess Charity Hope Valentine, an eternal optimist who is forever unlucky in love. Her trusting nature and naiveté makes her prey for a succession of opportunistic men. The razor-sharp script lifts the veil on the exquisite agony of living on the under-side of life. This is a comedy with an edge.
With music direction by David Walsh and choreography by Aileen Coffey, the new Cork City Musical Society promises to entertain you with a highly-theatrical, fast-paced and entertaining show, featuring such well-known musical numbers as “If My Friends Could See Me Now,” “Big Spender” and “Rhythm of Life”.
