With a cast of more than 40 girls singing, dancing and acting, Manchester High School for Girls performed three nights of the hit musical ‘Sweet Charity’. Leading lady, Izzy Rubin, who played Charity Hope gave a stunning performance along with the other girls.
‘Sweet Charity’ follows the misadventures of the plucky and guileless Miss Charity Hope Valentine who runs her heart like a hotel. Unlucky in love, she keeps the faith that her big break and Prince Charming are just around the corner.
Izzy’s love interest, Oscar, was played by 17-year-old Ella Duffy from Chorlton, and the main support came from Cheadle girl Talia Ingleby (17) and Hannah Adler (17) from Prestbury. The annual school production enables girls to work with students from different year groups cultivating a strong sense of camaraderie and forging new friendships.
17-year-old Hale resident Izzy said: “I was absolutely ecstatic when I found out I’d been cast as Charity, and I couldn’t wait to start rehearsing. After I leave school, I hope to study musical theatre at drama school. Sweet Charity has definitely been the highlight of my seven years at MHSG!”
