All dressed up for My Fair Lady media launch

Lyle Wilson and Lindsay Kruger dressed up in their finest.

Cast members in full period costume gathered at the Kenilworth Room at Kenilworth Racecourse on Saturday June 11 for the media launch of the G&S production of My Fair Lady, taking place at the Artscape Opera House from Saturday July 16 to Sunday August 7.

In their finery, the cast mingled with members of the media and enjoyed canapes and sparkling wine, while taking in a day at the races.

The fourth race of the afternoon was renamed the My Fair Lady Plate in honour of the production.

The rags-to-riches tale tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a poor Cockney flower seller who is transformed into a Duchess by an irascible professor of phonetics, Henry Higgins.

It is a popular favourite that has delighted generations of theatre-goers since it first opened in 1959.

The G&S show is directed and choreographed by Kyla Thorburn.

Ticket prices range from R150 to R325.
