An upcoming national tour of Sweet Charity, starring the previously-announced Molly Ringwald, will play the Denver Center for the Arts from December 5th through December 17th, 2006, and Houston's Theatre Under the Stars from June 26th through July 8th, 2007.

The tour will launch at the American Musical Theatre of San Jose, where Ringwald will play vulnerable taxi dancer Charity Hope Valentine in the fall of 2006. Other stops on the tour in addition to Denver and Houston have yet to be announced.

The new touring production of Sweet Charity will boast direction by Walter Bobbie and choreography by Wayne Cilento, both of whom worked on the recent Broadway revival starring Christina Applegate. Sweet Charity features music by Cy Coleman, lyrics by Dorothy Fields and a book by Neil Simon.

Ringwald first became famous for starring in a string of John Hughes-directed 80s teen movies such as The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles. She has also appeared on Broadway in Enchanted April and Cabaret, and off-Broadway in tick, tick...BOOM!, Modern Orthodox, How I Learned to Drive and Lily Dale. Other film credits include Pretty in Pink, King Lear, Face the Music and Not Another Teen Movie.

The American Theatre of San Jose will also play host to an upcoming production of Camelot starring Michael York as King Arthur; the Lerner and Loewe musical will be presented in winter of 2007.
