The Neumann University Players will present Pygmalion Thursday, November 11 through Sunday, November 14 in the Fred P. Meagher Theatre in the Thomas A. Bruder Jr. Life Center.
Pygmalion tells the story of esteemed phonetician Professor Henry Higgins as he becomes acquainted with the clumsy, coarse dialect of one Eliza Doolittle, an “incarnate insult to the English language!” As a sculptor with a rough stone, Higgins seeks to create a fine “duchess” out of the unrefined Eliza. But, once refined, can she help him to polish his own coarse demeanor? Inspiration for the famous musical My Fair Lady, Shaw’s Pygmalion entertains and inspires audiences today as it has done for the past nearly 100 years.
Thursday through Saturday shows begin at 8 p.m. and the matinee on Sunday begins at 2 p.m. The box office opens one hour before performances. General admission is $10 and $5 for students and seniors, and Neumann faculty, staff and administration. The group rate is $5 for groups of 15 or more for the same performance.
For reservations and information contact the Neumann University Players Box Office at 610-361-5455. Tickets reserved but not purchased will be held at the box office until a half-hour before curtain, after which time they may be released.
