Byline: Fair Lady

THE customers are always right, and a sell-out first night audience for this Lerner and Loewe musical classic proved the public are still in love with a show which opened on Broadway back in 1956.

Making her debut as production director for the Lichfield Operatic Society, Ruth Harvey makes quite an impact with this story of how phonetics expert Henry Higgins transforms common Covent Garden flower girl Eliza Doolittle.

The show includes great songs like Wouldn't It Be Loverly and I'm Getting Married In The Morning.

Jordan Adams is an excellent Higgins and there is a superb performance from Jo McAllister as Eliza.

Wonderful comedy, too, from Craig Allen as dustman Alfred P. Doolittle, while David Hill impresses as Colonel Hugh Pickering and Eoin Edwards proves the ideal toff, Freddie Eynsford-Hill.
