If you spoke as she does Sir,
Instead of the way you do,
Why, you might be selling flowers, too.
Hailed by audiences and critics for its huge heart and tremendous wit, My Fair Lady tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young cockney flower girl who meets Henry Higgins, by chance. Acclaimed professor of linguistics, Higgins, is determined to prove that he can teach anyone to speak so that they will be accepted by the highest ranks of society. While a wager is made on whether or not the professor can fundamentally change Eliza’s speech, and therefore her prospects in life, it remains to be seen exactly who will be changing who.
Performed by a talented cast from Oundle School, audiences will recognise musical theatre classics such as “Wouldn’t it Be Loverly”, “Get Me to the Church on Time” and “On the Street Where You Live”.
