Neshaminy Valley Music Theatre will present its 63rd annual production, My Fair Lady, on March 29th, 30th and 31st and April 5th and 6th at Neshaminy High School’s Theodore Kloos Auditorium, 2001 Old Lincoln Highway in Langhorne.
Friday performances are at 8:00pm, Saturday performances at 3:00 and 8:00pm, and Sunday at 3:00pm.
The production will be directed and choreographed by Barrymore Award-nominated director/choreographer Stephen Casey. My Fair Lady is based on George Bernard Shaw’s play Pygmalion, with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe.
The musical tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor who is determined to transform her into his idea of a “proper lady.”
Who is really being transformed is the question at the heart of this beloved musical. The score boasts such classic songs as “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “The Rain in Spain,” “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly” and “On the Street Where You Live.”
Tressa McCallister of Willow Grove stars as Eliza Doolittle and Ken Marblestone of Langhorne as Professor Henry Higgins.
Marblestone was awarded Outstanding Actor in a Musical in 2016 by the International Music and Entertainment Awards for his role in Neshaminy Valley’s production of The Music Man.
The other cast members include Michael Powell of Hatboro as Alfred P. Doolittle, John Humphreys of Doylestown as Colonel Pickering, Ben Deschner of Newtown as Freddie Eynsford-Hill, Linda Schwandt of Fairless Hills as Mrs. Higgins, Rita Enders of Langhorne as Mrs. Pearce, Nancy Obern of Newtown as Mrs. Eynsford-Hill, Barry Dratch of Newtown as Jamie, and Joe Harris of Trevose as Harry.
