Arkansas Shakespeare Theater

AST

In its 12th summer season, Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre will present Lerner and Loewe’s My Fair Lady, opening in the University of Central Arkansas’s Reynolds Performance Hall on June 15 and running through July 7.

AST’s Producing Artistic Director Rebekah Scallet will direct the multiple Tony Award-winning musical that premiered in 1956. This intimate new production will feature an all Arkansas-native production team, including Robert Frost as music director.

A musical adaptation of George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, My Fair Lady tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a flower girl who wants to transform her status by changing the way she speaks, and so she goes to curmudgeonly speech professor Henry Higgins for assistance. AST’s production will feature New York City-based actress Gabriella Pérez (seen last year as Marian the Librarian in The Music Man) as Eliza, with AST newcomer Thom Miller as Henry Higgins.   MORE
