Adapted from George Bernard Shaw’s Play and Gabriel Pascal’s Motion Picture “PYGMALION.” Original Production Directed by Moss Hart. Lerner and Loewe’s MY FAIR LADY is presented by arrangement with Tams-Witmark, A Concord Theatricals Company
Hailed by critics and audiences alike for its heart and wit, My Fair Lady is a beautiful musical about transformation, patronage, gender politics and class. Acclaimed Professor and confirmed bachelor Henry Higgins makes a wager with his linguistic colleague Colonel Pickering that in six months he can pass off “gutter snipe” Eliza Doolittle as a duchess at an embassy ball. Through arduous training, Eliza learns how to speak English “properly,” and transforms into a lady respected and adored by all classes. Originally produced on Broadway in 1956, “My Fair Lady” is Alan Lerner and Frederick Loewe’s most popular musical collaboration, earning nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical. There have been numerous Broadway revivals and a 1964 movie starring Audrey Hepburn.
Auditions will be December 16 or 17 @ 6 pm – 8:30 pm
