Young Harris College to Present Tony Award-Winning Broadway Musical “My Fair Lady”

YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. – Young Harris College’s Theatre Young Harris will present six performances of “My Fair Lady” in Dobbs Theatre located in Goolsby Center on the YHC Campus.

“My Fair Lady” tells the story of Henry Higgins, a Professor of Phonetics, encountering Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl, one cold March night at Covent Garden market. He declares to his friend Colonel Pickering that in three months he could transform Eliza into a duchess. Over the course of several months, Eliza, who moves into the Higgins household, is put through a grueling course of phonetics and oratory lessons by Higgins. Eliza’s moment of triumph comes at the Embassy Ball—she is beautiful, elegant, and well-spoken and proves to be an enormous success. Eliza soon finds out the truth about Higgins’ motives.
