Editor’s note: Please check with local venues for the latest updates on how they are affected by COVID-19 restrictions.
Barnstormers Theatre: The local theatre group will present “Pygmalion” by George Bernard Shaw, directed by Amelia Caldwell. “Pygmalion” is the classic play that inspired the musical “My Fair Lady.” It tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl who seizes a chance to improve her chances in life by learning how to speak proper English under the tutelage of a phonetician, Professor Henry Higgins. Higgins accepts a bet from Colonel Pickering to pass Eliza off as a fine lady, and Eliza’s transformation begins. The relationship that forms between teacher and student is at the heart of this witty and poignant play. This production will be shown to live audiences and also via livestream. Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays through Nov. 7, and at 2 p.m. Sundays through Nov. 8. There will be no performance on Halloween, Saturday Oct. 31.
