CASTING has been announced for the staging of a much-loved classic musical, set to take to the stage at Theatr Clwyd.

Community theatre company Tip Top Productions, with its rehearsal space in Wrexham, has revealed the cast for its upcoming production of Sweet Charity.

The show will run at The Mix, Theatr Clwyd's theatre in a big top in Mold, from June 12-15.

Most recently, Tip Top staged The Sound of Music at Storyhouse in Chester and also a festive Christmas concert at Chester's St Mary's Creative Space. In addition to staging Sweet Charity at Theatr Clwyd, the company will be returning to Storyhouse later this year with two further productions, John Godber's Bouncers and musical compilation show Tip Top at The Musicals.

Sweet Charity tells the story of Charity Hope Valentine, a down-on-her-luck dance hall hostess who longs to find love. She works at the seedy Fandango Ballroom with her sassy friends and hopes to someday find Mr Right.

Could he be the international movie star, Vittorio Vidal, with whom Charity spends one romantic evening? Or the claustrophobic accountant, Oscar, with whom she gets stuck in an elevator? Or, does the real answer to her happiness lay somewhere inside her?

With a score by Cy Coleman, book by Neil Simon, and original choreography by Bob Fosse, Charity's adventurous journey towards love is marked by some of the best loved songs - If My Friends Could See Me Now, There's Gotta Be Something Better Than This, I'm a Brass Band - and some of the most iconic dance numbers - Big Spender, Rich Man's Frug, Rhythm of Life - in Broadway history.

Leading the cast as Charity is Rebecca Snowden, joined by local musical theatre performer Rob Lyon as Oscar.

Playing the role of Helene, Charity's friend and a hostess of The Fandango Ballroom, is Bethany Culshaw and cast as Nickie, also a hostess at The Fandango Ballroom, is Kate Barclay.

Speaking about the production, Steve Davies, the show's director, said: "We are excited to be returning to Theatr Clwyd to stage this fantastic musical in The Mix for five performances. We have been fortunate to assemble a fantastic cast and we can't wait to see the show take to the stage in June."

Sweet Charity will be held in The Mix at Theatr Clwyd from June 12-15 at 7.30pm. There will also be a matinee performance at 2.30pm on Saturday, June 15.
