CSCP Presents Pygmalion
Opening October 2015
Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw
George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion begins at the portico of Saint Paul’s Church during a surprise rainstorm. It is there, amidst the bystanders, that Henry Higgins, professor of phonetics and author of Higgins Universal Alphabet, not only meets a colleague that he intended to go to India to meet, but also a flower girl who will come to test the length and breadth of both his teaching ability and his personality.
When the flower girl (Eliza Doolittle) shows up at Higgins’ house, he’s quite surprised, but she’s determined to become a lady in a flower shop. So with the help of his friend Colonel Pickering, Higgins takes the challenge to turn a poor, common, Cockney flower girl into a proper English lady. To add to the excitement, he takes a bet he can do it in six months.
Pygmalion will be presented at the historic Kent Theatre in downtown Cedar Springs. (8 North Main Street, Cedar Springs, MI)
