Frinton Summer Theatre – My Fair Lady
Date(s) - 29/08/2023
7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
The Greensward, Esplanade,
Frinton Summer Theatre will once again bring a touch of West End glitz to the east coast when this year’s production of My Fair Lady comes to the famous Big Top Tent on Frinton’s Greensward, 65 years after the show first opened at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane.
Based on George Bernard Shaw’s 1913 stage play, Pygmalion, My Fair Lady follows the fortunes of lowly cockney flower-seller Eliza Doolittle. When Eliza overhears Henry Higgins, an arrogant phonetics professor, boast how he could teach her to speak ‘proper’ English, she turns up at his house and challenges him to prove his point.
Their journey through the intricate conventions of English society takes them both through some unexpected emotional twists that compel both the head and the heart to reconsider long-held perceptions.
Running from Tuesday, 22nd August until Sunday, September 3rd, this classic comedy drama has become one of musical theatre’s all-time favourites.
All evening performances start at 7.30pm with matinee performances at 3pm on Thursday and Saturday. And Sunday matinees begin at 4pm.
There is a signed performance on Saturday, 26th August at 3pm which is bookable via the box office only.
Tickets are priced at £35 and £40. There is a 10% discount for groups of 10 to 29 and a 15% discount for groups of 30 or more. Accessible seating is available for £35 (carers enjoy 10% discount) while £25 day tickets are available on the day of the performance for Blue Lights card holders. 2 for 1 day tickets are also available on the day of the performance for students presenting a valid student ID.
