NDCL presented My Fair Lady
this year for their spring musical in the Pat and Janet O'Brien Center for the Performing Arts, featuring the Sam J. Frankino Stage.
This Broadway classic, which won six Tony Awards, depicts the transformation of a cockney flower girl by a phonetics professor in London in the early nineteenth century. The delightful story unfolds through famous show tunes such as Wouldn't It Be Loverly?, The Rain in Spain, Get Me to the Church on Time,
and I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face.
NDCL's production features Marissa Webb
as Eliza Doolittle, Tom Fogarty
as Professor Henry Higgins, Carter Callender
as Alfred Doolittle, Zach Smith
as Colonel Pickering, Briana Cowman
as Mrs. Pearce, and Tad Brennan
as Freddy. The entire cast, crew, and orchestra include more than 45 students.
Alan Jay Lerner wrote the play's book and lyrics, and Frederick Loewe composed the musical score. My Fair Lady was adapted from Pygmalion, a play by George Bernard Shaw and a motion picture by Gabriel Pascals.
Performing Arts Department chairperson Ms. Shirley Ivancic Stall directs the production. Assisting Ms. Ivancic Stall are music teacher Mr. Adam Pysell, musical director; Family and Consumer Sciences chairperson Mrs. Mary Wheelock, costuming, hair, and make-up; and science teacher Miss Melissa Parey, production manager.
