Southridge School presents the classic Lerner and Loewe musical My Fair Lady Feb. 27-March 3 at the senior school's Alan Brown Great Hall.

Directed by drama teacher Jennifer Kelly, the classic story of spirited Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle and her imperious speech and deportment mentor Professor Henry Higgins (adapted from George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion) promises to be a singing-dancing delight, full of good characterizations and the atmosphere – and clothing – of Downton Abbey-era England (c. 1912).

Featured are Carson Van Noot as Higgins, Nicole Moretto as Eliza, Nick Adams as Colonel Pickering, Chelsea Andreou as Mrs. Higgins and David Wei as Freddy Eynsford-Hill and several teachers, including science and phys. ed. teacher Paul Doig in a bravura performance as Eliza's rascally dad Alfred.

Tickets are $10 and are available online at www.southridge.bc.ca or by calling 604-535-5056 (or at the door).
