WALLASEY-based St Paul's Musical Theatre Company's production of My Fair Lady will be staged next month.

Produced and directed by Brenda Davies with music direction by Sian James, the show will be staged at the Floral Pavilion in New Brighton from October 24 to 26.

Based on George Bernard Shaw's 1913 play, Pygmalion, My Fair Lady plays as powerfully for modern-day audiences as it did in the original 1956 Broadway production.

Eliza's transformation illuminates society's prejudices, the gender divide and personal identity.

It features much loved songs such as On the Street Where You Live, With A Little Bit of Luck and I Could Have Danced All Night.

The cast features Rebecca Hulse as Eliza Dottlittle, Barry Prescott as Alfie Doolittle, David Oliver as Henry Higgins and John Phipps as Colonel Pickering.

Tickets are from the box office on 666 0000.
