Lerner and Loewe’s award-winning story of a cockney flower girl transformed into an elegant lady is widely considered one of the greatest musicals of all time. When Lerner and Loewe’s My Fair Lady opened on Broadway, it collected six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, while the film version took home eight Oscars, including Best Picture. 

Based on George Bernard Shaw’s play Pygmalion, My Fair Lady is that rare musical by which all others are measured. The tale of a cockney flower girl transformed into an elegant lady features one of musical theatre’s greatest scores, including: “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?”, “With a Little Bit of Luck”, “The Rain in Spain”, “I Could Have Danced All Night”, and “On the Street Where You Live.”

FCT’s production of My Fair Lady will be directed by Lucia Hanover and produced by Amanda Gibson. The music director is Brianna Williamson and musical numbers will be choreographed by Jennifer Perrius. Performances will be held at the Theatre at Vint Hill, 4225 Aiken Drive, Warrenton, from May 3 to May 19. Fridays and Saturday performances take place at 7:30 pm and Sunday matinees are at 2 pm.

Ticket prices are $18 for students and senior citizens, and $20 for adults. Early advanced reservations are highly recommended as FCT shows are known to sell out. Enjoy quality local community theatre near “the street where you live.”
