My Fair Lady is a classic of American Musical Theater. Set in the London in 1912, it tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a simple flower girl, and Professor Henry Higgins, who attempts to transform her and her lower class accent into the perfect semblance of a well-educated Lady. In the process, both Henry and Eliza are changed forever.
Written by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, the musical is filled with songs that have become American standards, including “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “Loverly,” “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face,” and “On the Street Where You Live.”
My Fair Lady is suitable for general audiences.
My Fair Lady features a cast of fifty Mason High School students and features Cara Severson as Eliza Doolittle, Brandon Cole as Henry Higgins, Sam Terribilini as Col. Pickering, James Oden as Alfred Doolittle, and Drew Stidham as Freddie Ensford-Hill. The show is stage-managed by Ri Moodie, assistant directed by Rebekah Cychosz and Matt Berman, assistant choreographed by Michelle Guiot, and assistant technical directed by Matt Slussher. Including performers, instrumentalists and technicians, well over 100 students have contributed their talents to this show. The play is produced by special agreement with Tams-Whitmark, New York, NY.
