My Fair Lady, a classic Broadway musical comedy tells the story of the over-confident Professor Higgins and his experiment that attempts to transform a cockney girl, Eliza, into a proper-speaking lady. Higgins and his friend Colonel Pickering make great progress with the girl and even take her to the horse races and a grand ball. Nevertheless, they still treat Eliza as a mere experiment and not as a human being. When Eliza runs away, Higgins realizes that she is so much more.

Based on “Pygmalion,” with book, music and lyrics by Lerner and Loewe, My Fair Lady is filled with song favorites such as Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?, With a Little Bit of Luck, I Could Have Danced All Night, On the Street Where You Live, Get Me to the Church on Time and I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face.

The production of My Fair Lady will be performed in cooperation with the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection May 5, 6, 7 at 7:30 pm, doors open at 7:00 pm Performances will be held at Church of the Resurrection, 13720 Roe Avenue, Leawood, KS.
