Garden Street Academy’s Upper School students will present three performances of the Broadway musical My Fair Lady. The show opens on Wednesday, March 9th and will run through Friday, March 11th. All show times are at 7pm. Based on George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, My Fair Lady tells the story of a common cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, and her transformation into a lady of high society. With the assistance of pompous phonetics professor Henry Higgins, who takes a bet from Colonel Pickering challenging him to pass Eliza as a duchess using the science of speech and grueling lessons on the proper pronunciation of the English language, Eliza Doolittle successfully changes the way she speaks and acts. This delightful musical comedy is a must see!
“Every student in our Upper School participates in the production at some level and the kids always rise to the occasion,” said Tamara Coghlan, Director of Theatre. “We don’t just put on a show, we strive to make it look and feel professional. From the costumes to the sets, we all put in the time and effort to make it as polished as possible.”
Show times are March 9th-11th at 7pm on our historic campus in the Black Box Theatre. Tickets are $10 per person.
