O&AN and TPAC want to send you and a guest to see Sweet Charity with Molly Ringwald live at Jackson Hall for FREE!

Just send us an email to with “Sweet Charity” in the subject line and the answer to the following Sweet Charity triva question:

Molly Ringwald was a cast member for one season on what popular NBC comedy series?

Don't forget to include your answer to the trivia question and a daytime phone number so we can let you know you've won. We'll see you at the show. Good luck!  (Only one entry per person please.) 

Do you want to have fun? Then dance on over to SWEET CHARITY, the Broadway musical that offers fun, laughs, good times...and it's coming to TPAC, starring the sensational Molly Ringwald, June 12-17.

The star of Broadway's Cabaret and such memorable films as The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink and Sixteen Candles, Ringwald takes center stage as Charity Hope Valentine, who's a true original, eternal optimist...and the unluckiest romantic in New York City.

SWEET CHARITY's tuneful score (by Cy Coleman and Dorothy Fields) features such hits as "Hey, Big Spender," "There's Gotta Be Something Better Than This" and "If My Friends Could See Me Now." And the show features a hilarious book by none other than Neil Simon.

USA Today hailed this new production as "exhilarating" and "a real kick." And the Wall Street Journal called it "a blast!"

SWEET CHARITY is directed by Walter Bobbie, who won the Tony Award for the runaway musical sensation Chicago. And the show features knockout choreography by Wayne Cilento who won a Tony Award for The Who's Tommy and has earned four Tony nominations for such hits as Wicked and How To Succeed....

Velvet Ibiza

Every year, Ibiza is home to Europe’s very epic queer woman’s party, Velvet Ibiza, which is celebrating its 7th anniversary and promises to be next level. Velvet Ibiza is an all-inclusive 5-day and 5-night party and includes transportation from the airport, a bungalow, 3 meals, and activities and parties day and night, and drinks until around 10:30 pm.

This year, international crowds of LGBTQ+ women will be attending Velvet Ibiza on May 2 - 7 to celebrate life, belonging, and freedom. Event organizers have rented an entire resort in order to build a community vibe and allow queer women to connect so there’s no reason to go anywhere unless of course, you want to go shopping, head to the beach, or explore the island.
