The star of a show appearing at Oakengates in October has said how much she’s looking forward to bringing a much-loved character to life. Sian Kyle is playing Eliza Doolittle in TADLOP’s production of ‘My Fair Lady’ which comes to The Place for three days from Wednesday 24 October. Sian says of the flower girl who goes to phonetics teacher Henry Higgins to ‘better herself’, “I feel very privileged to be taking on the role of Eliza… I’m especially looking forward to the ‘reveal’ of Eliza at the embassy ball.”
The musical version of George Bernard Shaw’s play ‘Pygmalion’ was made famous on screen by Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn and contains classic songs such as ‘I’m Getting Married in the Morning’, ‘I Could Have Danced All Night’, and ‘Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?’
The musical runs at Oakengates Theatre from Wednesday 24 to Saturday 27 October at 7.30pm with a 2.30pm matinee on Saturday. Tickets are £15 – visit theplacetelford.com or visit Telford and District Light Operatic Players’ website at tadlop.com.
