This will be a smaller ensemble show – we are looking to cast 14 individuals. We would like this to be a very intimate production spotlighting the characters and their relationships with less focus on the spectacle around them. As such, we are looking for strong and versatile singers and actors. The whole ensemble needs to have tight harmonies.
ELIZA, HIGGINS, PICKERING, and DOOLITTLE will be stand-alone roles.
The rest of the cast will include 5 MEN and 5 WOMEN. Those individuals will perform in multiple roles and posses the ability to speak in multiple accents.

“MY FAIR LADY” is a musical adapted from Bernard Shaw’s book and Gabriel Pascal’s motion picture “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 phonetician, so that she may pass as a lady.
