The Millennium Repertory production of the all-time favorite musical “My Fair Lady” will open Nov. 15 for two weekends at the Manchester Arts Center.
Plucking the feisty Eliza (played by Samantha Terrell-Watters) off the streets of London, the cocky professor Henry Higgins (Joel Longstreth) bets he can pass her off as a duchess. He’s determined to win; she’s determined to make the most of her new life. Will opposites attract, or will arrogance trump true affection? Every song’s a classic: “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?”, “I Could Have Danced All Night”, “Get Me to the Church on Time”, “On the Street Where You Live”, and on and on.
The cast of over 30 includes Samantha Terrell-Watters as Eliza, Joel Longstreth as Higgins, Robert Hiers as Doolittle, Frank Wonder as Pickering, Nick Mullins as Freddy, Becky Spangler as Mrs. Higgins, and Karen Lewis as Mrs. Pearce. The director is April Glosson-Smith, with musical direction by Landon Spangler.
Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays, Nov. 15 - 24. Tickets are $15, $13 for seniors/military, $10 for students, and are available at millenniumrep.org, or call 931.570.4489. The Manchester Arts Center is located at 128 E. Main St.
