LETU Stage Right Theatrical Group to Perform 'Pygmalion'

Thu, Nov 20 2008

LeTourneau University’s Stage Right, a student theatrical group, will perform Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw at 7 p.m., Thursday and Friday, Nov. 20-21, and at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 23, in the Education Building Lecture Room 120. Tickets are $5 for the general public and will be sold at the door.
Based on classical myth, Shaw’s Pygmalion plays on the complex business of human relationships in a social world. A prim and proper phonetics Professor Henry Higgins tutors the working class, Cockney-accented Eliza Doolittle, not only in the refinement of speech, but also in the refinement of her manner. When the end result produces a very ladylike Miss Doolittle, the lessons learned become much more far reaching. The successful musical My Fair Lady was based on this Bernard Shaw classic.
