Independent event The Theatre


For the past three decades, the students of Corfe Hills School have performed their annual school musical at Lighthouse, Poole. The chance to work in a professional theatre is a rare and treasured opportunity. The collaboration, enjoyment and sense of pride the young people gain from such a shared event is tremendous and for many, shapes their experiences and memories of secondary school. We hope that you can join us to celebrate the energy, dedication and talent of young people from your community.

‘Sweet Charity’ is the endearing tale of hopeless romantic, Charity, and her desperate attempts to find true, everlasting love in 1960s New York City. Fighting off undesirables is an occupational hazard for Charity as she works as a dance hall hostess in one of the Big Apple’s seedier night clubs. Just when it appears that all is lost, a chance meeting with an awkward but kind tax accountant, Oscar, offers her a ray of hope. Despite the many obstacles she and Oscar encounter, Charity really believes her dreams of a white-picket fence and married bliss are within her reach.
The musical features the iconic ‘Big Spender’ and toe-tapping ‘Rhythm of Life’ amongst other big dance numbers. With students from all year groups across the school community participating as crew, band members and performers, this year’s winter production of ‘Sweet Charity’ at Lighthouse, Poole promises to entertain and will certainly showcase the skill and commitment of students from Corfe Hills School.
