Campbellsville University theater to perform 'My Fair Lady'

By Josh Christian

CAMPBELLSVILLE, KY - The Campbellsville University Theater Department is partnering with Town Hall Productions and Don Franklin Campbellsville for five performances of the musical, "My Fair Lady." These productions will be at the Russ Mobley Theater in the Alumni Building at 114 University Drive, Campbellsville, KY.

Performances will occur on Thursday, June 30, 2016; Friday, July 1; Saturday, July 2; Sunday, July 3 and Monday, July 4. Thursday through Saturday, these performances will begin at 6pmCT/7pmET. On Sunday, the performance will begin at 1:30pmCT/2:30pmET, and on Monday, the performance will begin at 5pmCT/6pmET.


Tickets will be sold at the door for $10. Seniors (65 and up), children (12 and under) and Campbellsville University employees and students and active military will pay $7.


The play is adapted from George Bernard Shaw's play and Gabriel Pascal's motion picture "Pygmalion" with Alan Jay Lerner's book and lyrics with music by Frederick Loewe.

A synopsis of the music includes a pompous phonetics professor named Henry Higgins who is so sure of his abilities that he takes it upon himself to transform a Cockney working-class girl into someone who can pass for a cultured member of high society.

His subject turns out to be the lovely Eliza Doolittle, who agrees to speech lessons to improve her job prospects. Higgins and Eliza clash, then form an unlikely bond; a bond that is threatened by both inward and outward forces.

Kelli Stanfield plays Eliza, and Ray Hollenbach plays Higgins.

The rest of the cast for the show is as follows: Ron Green as Pickering; Alia McClendon as Mrs. Pearce; Matthew Hutchins as Freddy; Les Chadwick as Doolittle; Tanner Thompson as Harry; Sarah Durham as Jamie and Lady Boxington; Tanner Reed as Butler and Hoxton Man; Sarah Ward as Mrs. Eynsford Hill and Mrs. Hopkins; Matthew Rogers as Bartender George and Policeman; Elijah Rogers as Bystander; Bryan Rule as Lord Boxington and Selsey Man; Gracyne Hash as Flower Girl and Maid; Tanner Thompson, Rafael Laurindo, Bryan Rule and Elijah Rogers as Cockney Quartet; Gracyne Hash and Malorie Byrne as Two Singing Maids; Matthew Rogers, Bryan Rule and Elijah Rogers as Three Street Performers; and Sarah Stafford Sims as Queen of England.

The crew includes: Nathan Allen as director; Starr Garrett as tech director; Dr. Bill Budai as music director; Andrew Ward as producer/Town Hall Productions; Priscila Dickson as accompanist; Jon Hieneman as light and sound supervisor; Nathan Cahall as light board operator; Art Smith over mics; and Haley Saylor as stage manager.

Susie Crowder is in charge of the box office; Lauren Phillips is costume supervisor and Lori Bell is in charge of the run crew.
