Sweet Charity


  • Brisbane Powerhouse 119 Lamington Street New Farm, QLD, 4005 Australia (map)

Wouldn’t you like to have fun?...

Welcome to 1966 at the Fandango Ballroom - Madison Avenue is bustling, skirts are shrinking and enteral optimist Charity Hope Valentine is rebuilding a broken heart and is ready for the world. 

One of Broadway's great musicals, Sweet Charity has been reimagined in a new and intimate setting, which puts the story of this young dreamer practically in the audiences lap.

Starring Naomi Price, fresh from Beautiful: The Carole King Musical as well as star of Australia’s hit TV show The Voice and her smash Adele show Rumour Has It, Sweet Charity tells the story of the young New York City "dance hall hostess" navigating her way through misfortune in life and love, seeking Something Better Than This.   

Filled with hilarious situations and irresistible hits like ‘Big Spender' and ‘The Rhythm of Life’, Sweet Charity is the musical comedy that will have you deleriously swinging from song to song. 

Co-Directed by Kris Stewart (Wicked, Kiss Me, Kate) and Maureen Bowra (Grease: The Arena Experience), Musical Direction by Shanon D Whitelock (Fame: The Musical, The Last Five Years), Design by Joseph Noonan (Falsettos, Carmen: Live or Dead)
