My Fair Lady

5 Jun 2015 to 13 Jun 2015

My Fair Lady is a musical based upon George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion, with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe. The story concerns Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney flower girl who takes speech lessons from professor Henry Higgins, a phoneticist, so that she may pass as a lady.

The musical's 1956 Broadway production was a momentous hit, setting what was then the record for the longest run of any major musical theatre production in history. It was followed by a hit London production, a popular film version, and numerous revivals. It has been called "the perfect musical".

With Julie Andrews on stage and Audrey Hepburn in the movie version, the memorable costumes and the fabulous songs, it is a favourite of many an audience.  My Fair Lady is also a great show to perform!  It has principal roles for people who can sing, those who are predominately straight actors with a bit of singing, and lots of wonderful chorus work for both singers and dancers.

Eliza Doolittle

Tina has always wanted to play Eliza Doolittle.  It is such a wonderful part and such a funny script. It is especially interesting for her because she has a cockney father who learnt how to "talk proper" when he moved to Australia and joined the theatre.  She’s also been bombarded with old cockney songs from a very young age because her parents met doing The Old Time Music Hall.  As a product of her environment she went on to study theatre for five years and one of the first plays she ever read was Pygmalion which she loved!

Tina went on to the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts to study Musical Theatre and then realised it was the songs that she loved the most.  So Tina has been a Jazz vocalist for the past 15 years.  She does have a slight Audrey Hepburn obsession that goes as far as her naming her daughter Sabrina although luckily didn't extend to giving her son Brodie a girly name. Apart from gigs her favourite stage experiences includes Maria from West Side Story and Hodel in Fiddler on the Roof.  More recently she played Roxie in Chicago and last year was lucky enough to play Sister Sophia in the Queanbeyan Players production of The Sound Of Music.
