Charleston Light Opera Guild Presents My Fair Lady

Lerner and Loewe's award-winning story of a Cockney flower girl transformed into an elegant lady is widely considered one of the greatest musicals of all times. When My Fair Lady opened on Broadway with Julie Andrews and Rex Harrison, it collected six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, while the film version with Audrey Hepburn and Harrison took home eight Oscars, including Best Picture.

The Charleston Light Opera Guild will present this masterpiece at the Charleston Civic Center Little Theatre on April 28, 29 and May 4, 5, 6, 11 and 12, 2018. The Guild has not produced this timeless classic in 25 years.

Based on George Bernard Shaw's play, Pygmalion, My Fair Lady is that rare musical by which all others are measured. Eliza Doolittle is a young flower seller with an unmistakable Cockney accent which keeps her in the lower rungs of Edwardian society. When Professor Henry Higgins tries to teach her how to speak like a proper lady, an unlikely friendship begins to flourish. With a book by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe the musical features one of Broadway's greatest scores.
