We plan to audition only the roles of Eliza, Higgins, Pickering, Mrs. Higgins, Mrs. Pearce, Karpathy, Alfred P. Doolittle, Freddy, Harry, Jamie, the Quartet, the Trio, and the Servants.  All other roles will be assigned based on these auditions.

It Will Be A Definite Advantage to audition with both a British and a Cockney accent, depending on which roles interest you.

Teens and younger:  we can put some of you in the Covent Garden scenes and perhaps in the Get Me To The Church On Time number.  You also can audition as Buskers:  juggling, tumbling, acrobatic routine, balancing act



SYNOPSIS:  An uneducated Cockney girl from the streets who just wants to sell her flowers. When she runs

into phonetics expert Henry Higgins and the linguist Colonel Pickering, she becomes the subject of their

bet. Higgins must take Eliza in and turn her into a proper lady in six months by teaching her to speak well–

so well that she could be mistaken for a princess.  

ELIZA DOOLITTLE Blunt, practical, and responsible. Eliza tends to speak her mind and is not shy about making her opinion known. From a poor background, she makes the best of her situation, putting all her effort into whatever she does, whether selling flowers or learning proper pronunciation.

COL. PICKERING Retired British officer and the author of “Spoken Sanskrit.”

MRS. EYNSFORD-HILL A friend of Mrs Higgins and Freddy’s mother

MRS. HIGGINS Henry’s long-suffering mother

HENRY HIGGINS British, upper class professional bachelor, world famous phonetics expert, teacher and

author of “Higgins’ Universal Alphabet.”  Higgins studies all the vagaries of language, and considers himself one of the foremost experts on the English tongue. That’s what leads him to say that he could teach Eliza, a Cockney flower girl, to speak like a princess.  Haughty, intelligent, absent-minded, dreadfully rude, and arrogant.
