ELIZA Doolittle gets a lesson in talking proper in Pygmalion at Kenilworth’s Talisman Theatre.

Professor Henry Higgins (Graham Underhill) wagers that he can transform working class Cockney flower seller Eliza (Karen Brooks) into a Duchess in George Bernard Shaw’s comedy.

Higgins then purchases Eliza from her father, Alfred Doolittle (John Nichols) for £5 and the experiment begins.

Talisman Director of Productions Christine Carpenter said: “This is an excellently funny play by Shaw that pokes fun at each and every class and has really withstood the trial of time'”

The production runs from July 4 to 11.

And they are also preparing for some classic comedy at Kenilworth’s Priory Theatre which stages Oscar Wilde’s masterpiece The Importance of Being Earnest, followed by more comedy in the shape of Alan Ayckbourn’sChorus of Disapproval at the end of October.

The Priory is also starting to prepare for Christmas and panto season by holding auditions for this year’s production Beauty & the Beast Running from December 16 to January 3.

Director Mark Jefferies said: ‘It’s been brilliant that so many local talented people turned up for auditions, from across Kenilworth and the surrounding areas, it has give us a lot of choice, but some difficult decisions to make.”
