Wow! How time flies! With all the rehearsals and performances of our recent productions going on I had almost forgotten that I would need to prepare for the readthrough and auditions for my own production, Pygmalion. It's all very exciting, and I hope I get a good turn out . . .come one, come all! Readthrough - 14 November, 7.30pm, Avonbourne School Audition - 24 November, 7.30pm, Avonbourne School

Professor of Phonetics, Henry Higgins makes a bet that he can train a bedraggled Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, to pass for a duchess at an ambassador's garden party by teaching her to assume a veneer of gentility, the most important element of which, he believes, is impeccable speech. The play is a sharp lampoon of the rigid British class system of the day and a comment on women's independence, packaged as a romantic comedy.
