Redlands College brings My Fair Lady to the Redland Performing Arts Centre stage with shows at 7.30pm on May 23, 24 and 25 and at 1.30pm on May 25.

The performance follows a season of The Sound of Music in 2017.

It features a cast of students accompanied by a professional orchestra which recreates the story of cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle who, with the help of linguistic professor Henry Higgins, is transformed into a refined and well-spoken lady who is able to take her place amongst the ranks of the British upper class.

Based on George Bernard Shaw's play Pygmalion, the musical is set in Edwardian times, when distinctions of gender and class was an important element of society.

Eliza's journey reflects the times, captured through the lyrics and score including Wouldn't It Be Loverly?, With a Little Bit of Luck, The Rain in Spain and I Could Have Danced All Night.

The show is supported by platinum sponsor Karreman Quarries.

Tickets are $32.50/$27.50 and $100 for a family pass of two adults and two children. Book at the RPAC Box Office, 2-16 Middle Street, Cleveland, phone 3829 8131 (a $4.30 booking fee per transaction applies) or visit rpac.com.au
