'My Fair Lady,' called the 'perfect musical,' hits the stage Aug. 1

The show at the Deb Fennell Auditorium is sure to be a big hit


by: CRAIG MITCHELLDYER/BROADWAY ROSE THEATRE COMPANY - WHAT A TRANSFORMATION! - Broadway Rose Theatre Company's production of 'My Fair Lady' stars Jazmin Gorsline as Eliza Doolittle and Kevin Connell as Professor Higgins, shown here in a scene where he is teaching her to speak like a proper English lady. Broadway Rose Theatre Company presents the beloved musical, "My Fair Lady," based on George Bernard Shaw's "Pygmalion," Aug. 1 to 28.

With book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe, "My Fair Lady" tells the story of Professor Henry Higgins, a curmudgeonly bachelor who makes a bet with his friend Colonel Pickering that he can pass off a simple Cockney flower girl as a refined society lady by teaching her how to speak with a desirable upper class accent and imparting proper etiquette.

It features such memorable songs as "I Could Have Danced All Night," "On the Street Where You Live," "The Rain in Spain" and "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face."

Starring in the musical are Jazmin Gorsline as Eliza Doolittle and Kevin Connell as Professor Higgins, with Dan Murphy as Alfred P. Doolittle. The cast of 24 will be supported by a 12-person live orchestra.

The show will be performed at the Deb Fennell Auditorium, 9000 S.W. Durham Road in Tigard, with evening performances Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and matinees at 2 p.m. on Sundays, and on Saturday, Aug. 10 and 17.
