My Fair Lady sets the bar high for the 86th season of acting at Strauss Theatre Center.

Strauss Theatre Center is excited to open its 86th season with the classic musical, My Fair Lady. My Fair Lady opens September 7th for patrons , and September 8th for the rest of the public. 

  My Fair Lady follows the story of a working class Cockney girl named Eliza. Eliza's life gets turned around when a haughty phonetics professor, Henry Higgins, takes it upon himself to teach Eliza 'proper' speech as well as how to fit in as a member of high society. Local Strauss stars, Hunt Heely and Hannah Bryan, will be bringing these two main characters to life.

Along with My Fair Lady, Strauss will be including The Mousetrap, Miracle on 34th Street: Radio Show, Smoke on the Mountain, and Sister Act in its 2017-2018 season.

Show times for the musical are September 7, 8, 15, and 16 at 7:00 p.m. and September 10 at 2:00 p.m. The matinee showing will include a high tea during intermission. Tickets are available here or by calling the box office at 318-323-6681.
