My Fair Lady comes to the stage at Hartsdown Academy

My Fair Lady at Hartsdown

One of the best musicals of all time unfolds on stage in Margate this week when Hart Theatre Company students present My Fair Lady at Hartsdown Academy on Tuesday and Wednesday.

It tells the story of a poor Cockney flower seller named Eliza Doolittle who overhears an arrogant phonetics professor, Henry Higgins, as he casually wagers that he could teach her to speak “proper” English, thereby making her presentable in the high society of Edwardian London.
