The Wellington Footlights Society is delighted to present its first production for 2019, Lerner and Loewe’s beloved classic, My Fair Lady, the award-winning story of a cockney flower girl transformed into an elegant lady.
Eliza Doolittle is a young flower seller with an unmistakable cockney accent that keeps her in the lower rungs of Edwardian society. As phonetician Henry Higgins attempts to teach her how to speak like a proper lady, an unlikely friendship begins to flourish.
Recipient of six Tony Awards for an original season that went on to run for over six years, My Fair Lady includes such universally memorable songs as “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?,” “With a Little Bit of Luck,” “The Rain in Spain,” “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “On the Street Where You Live,” and “Get Me to the Church on Time”.
