Theater historian to explore the film 'My Fair Lady' at St. Charles venue

Wednesdays @ One, a series of free events produced by the Norris Cultural Arts Center, continues with "The Making of 'My Fair Lady'" at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 28, at the historic Baker Community Center in downtown St. Charles.

Theater historian and storyteller Charles Troy documents the story behind the creation of one of the world’s most beloved musicals, Lerner and Loewe’s “My Fair Lady,” a news release announced. Follow the creative genesis beginning with George Bernard Shaw’s “Pygmalion” in 1912, a theatrical comedy that was produced as a motion picture in 1938.

Then discover how Lerner and Loewe turned this complex material – an intellectual drawing-room comedy – into a stunning musical theater achievement. Charles Troy employs a seamless blend of recorded songs, original graphics, vintage photos, historic video, and scripted narrative to dramatize the stories of the American musical theater, the release stated.

Due to capacity restrictions caused by the pandemic, seating at these free events is limited to 50 guests. For guaranteed seating in the socially distanced audience, preregister online at tinyurl.com/y3634ayd.

Wednesdays @ One events are made possible by a generous contribution from Colonial Cafe restaurants. To see the full schedule of programming, visit norrisculturalarts.com.
