Sweet Charity tells the story of a woman on a quest for love


Wilk belts it out with her fellow cast members. The musical includes hit songs such as “Hey, Big Spender” and “If My Friends Could See Me Now.”

The musical “Sweet Charity” has met considerable success in its introduction by the Music, Theatre and Dance Department at Oakland University. Junior Jaclene Wilk plays the title character, Charity Hope Valentine, and the production is being directed by Anthony Guest.

The musical follows Charity as she looks beyond her life as a ballroom dancer in New York City for a shot at true love. Good music and crafty effects abound as the tale unfolds before the audience’s eyes.

The production is being held in the Varner Studio Theatre until Sunday, March 30. For dates and times visit oakland.edu/mtd.
