My Fair Lady Auditions


My Fair Lady

Based on George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion, with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe. The Cinderella story about the Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, and the appealingly arrogant phoneticist, Professor Higgins, is an endearing tale that charms audiences with its warmth and vivid characters.

The clash of cultures sparks some of the theatre's most jubilant songs and witty dialogue. The triumphant score features unforgettable numbers including 'Wouldn't It Be Loverly?', 'On the Street Where You Live', 'I Could Have Danced All Night' and 'Get Me to the Church on Time'.

When My Fair Lady was first performed in Christchurch in 1962, it set the all-time record at the Theatre Royal for attendance, running for an extraordinary 171 performances, to an audience of 200,000 patrons. The show has recently enjoyed enormous success with sold-out revival seasons on Broadway, in Sydney and Melbourne.
