The starring role in the classic musical Sweet Charity has been on Carbonell Award-winning actress Margot Moreland’s wish list for a long time:
“Playing Charity Hope Valentine is a dream come true, a role I have loved from afar and never thought I’d get the chance to play,” Moreland says. “She is sweet, hopeful, feisty, charming, complex and vulnerable while on her quest for love.”
The Boca Raton Theatre Guild’s production of Sweet Charity will open on March 2nd at the Willow Theatre in Sugar Sand Park, and will run through March 18th.
“I am so excited to be a part of this show,” Moreland contines. “It has a funny and heart-warming book by Neil Simon, fabulous music written by Cy Coleman, hysterical and poignant lyrics from Dorothy Fields, and it’s all being molded together by the extraordinary vision of our director, Keith Garsson.”
Jeffrey Bruce, who plays Charity’s principal love interest, Oscar Lindquist, is equally enthusiastic about the production:
“It’s so exciting to be doing Sweet Charity at this time – I’m very proud to be part of the BRTG’s continuing transition from community to professional theatre.” Bruce says. “And the chance to play opposite my friend of many years, Margot Moreland, is just wonderful. We were always touring one place or another and never had the opportunity. The Boca Raton Theatre Guild has given us this chance and I couldn’t have asked for more. Margot gives 150% and makes the process so easy for the entire cast. I play her boyfriend, Oscar, and for me, well, it’s about time! Both Margot and I are “nontraditional casting” for the roles and I think we both bring new insights to our characters. I know I can safely say the audience will have as much fun as the actors onstage!”
Sweet Charity will run from March 2nd through March 18th. Performances are: Wednesday – Saturday at 8:00 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. The Willow Theatre in Sugar Sand Park is located at 300 South Military Trail in Boca Raton, just south of Palmetto Park Road.
