Book and Lyrics by A L A N J AY LERNER Music by F RED ERICK LOE WE Adapted from George Bernard Shaw's Play and Gabriel Pascal's Motion Picture "PYGMALIO N " Original Production Directed and Staged by Moss Hart My Fair Lady is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).

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,” “On the Street Where You Live,” “Get Me to the Church on Time,” and “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face.” Eliza Doolittle is a young flower seller with an unmistakable Cockney accent which keeps her in the lower rungs of Edwardian society. When Professor Henry Higgins tries to teach her how to speak like a proper lady, an unlikely friendship begins to flourish.
From the Director
g The show you are about to see is a 1956 popular Broadway success. My Fair Lady by Lerner and Loewe, originally starring Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews, set the record for the longest running show on Broadway up to that time. It was followed by the well known, chart topping film version starring Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn. My Fair Lady was last revived in 1993 and is returning to Broadway this year. Everyone can relate to wanting more out of life and becoming a better version of yourself. Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl, happens upon an arrogant, phoneticist named Henry Higgins. Professor Higgins believes he can make Eliza into a lady by giving her speech lessons and eventually land her a job in a flower shop. He makes a wager with a linguist named Colonel Pickering and the two begin an extreme makeover of speech, manners, and dress. Remember, Higgins is arrogant and knows that men are far superior than women. What Higgins doesn’t realize is that when you invest in someone, trying to improve someone else’s value of life, your heart can be changed giving your life more value and love. Meanwhile, this cast is full of colorful cockney and proper people trying to get ahead in life, looking for love and attention. I would like to thank the many people who made this production possible: I thank my Lord and Savior for giving me a talent that I can use to His glory. Our Head of School, Mr. David Kilgore, for his undying love and support for the Arts. The amazing Mr. Seals, our Fine Arts Director, for being the rock to count on and the jack of all trades. None of this could be done “Without You.” Our one of a kind Musical Director, Mr. Brandon Martell, for making sure “The Rain in Spain Stays Mainly in the Plain,” and our singing stays fabulous on the stage. To the orchestra, who shared the stage with us in style. To all the moms who helped with sewing, gluing, creating, and thrifting, especially Mrs. Gemmell for stepping in to make us look great! To my fine arts team for being the best
fine arts team around and my partners in crime. And finally, to my wonderful husband and family for knowing just what I need, when I need it and being by my side through everything God puts before us. To the audience, “With a Little Bit of Luck,” we will take you from “On the Street Where You Live,” to the streets of London. “Wouldn’t it Be Loverly,” if you found something in this performance that touches your heart and thoroughly entertains you, to where you go home thinking, “I Could Have Danced All Night!”
ANNE MARIE GAIGE MUSICAL DIRECTOR
About the Wroiters
The collaboration of librettist-lyricist Alan Jay Lerner and composer Frederick Loewe defined wit and glamour in the golden era of the Broadway and Hollywood musical. The duo were winners of multiple Oscars, Tonys, Golden Globes and Olivier Awards for their incomparable works. Alan Jay Lerner (1918-1986) and Frederick Loewe (1901-1988) wrote some of the most stylish, sophisticated theater music of the 20th century. The collaboration didn’t come until relatively late in the career of each. New York-born, Harvard-educated Lerner wrote material for radio and for individual performers in the ‘30s. Loewe, born in Berlin, came to the U.S. in 1924 and gradually worked his way into theater music. The two were introduced in 1942. They scored their first hit, the fantasy Brigadoon, in 1947. The Lerner-Loewe formula was to combine Loewe’s lush, melodic music, redolent of Viennese waltz, with Lerner’s witty, literate lyrics. This they did in some of the most popular and best-remembered musicals of the ‘40s, ‘50s, and ‘60s, notably Paint Your Wagon, My Fair Lady, and Camelot (plus the musical film Gigi).

Her favorite Bible verse is Matthew 6:34, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.

From the Director of Fine Arts Since last December I have had the privilege of witnessing our students transform themselves from 21st century Floridians into the Edwardian era Londoner’s of My Fair Lady, Calvary Christian High School’s 2018 Spring Musical. Over 100 years, and the Atlantic Ocean separate them from the characters they portray and it is surprising to see both the similarities and differences between then and now, there and here. Perhaps that is in part the brilliance of Lerner and Loewe’s adaptation of George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion. Similar to the transformation that Eliza Doolittle undergoes, the process has been captivating to watch students discover layers of themselves and their characters in such a short period of time. This is evidence for just how hard these students have worked in preparation, focused on bringing you their best for only two brief performances. So it is a great encouragement for them to see you in the seats this evening and I know for many of you reading this program, you have been with them since the beginning; helping rehearse lines late at night, shuttling back and forth for rehearsals, and hundreds of gestures both large and small. Thank you for your time, resources, and patience. The lessons learned and relationships forged and strengthened during the preparation for a production like this are far more important than any particular performance. I am proud of our Drama Program and grateful for all those who make it possible, including the dedicated parent volunteers and that spend countless hours in service. I’d like to give a special thanks to our Head of School, Mr. Kilgore, for his continued support and enthusiasm for fine arts at CCHS. Congratulations to the cast and crew of My Fair Lady, and to Director Mrs. Anne Marie Gaige!
