About us

Pick Me Up Theatre brings one of the greatest Broadway musicals of all time to the Grand Opera House in York this November.

My Fair Lady is the story of irascible phonetics professor Henry Higgins and Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle. Higgins takes a bet that with work on her speech and manners he can pass Eliza off as a duchess.

Based on George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion, it's often described as the perfect musical – with witty book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and the wonderful music of Frederick Loewe.

The timeless score features songs like Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?, With a Little Bit of Luck, The Rain in Spain, I Could Have Danced All Night, On the Street Where You Live, Get Me to the Church on Time, and I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face

My Fair Lady was a massive hit when it opened on Broadway in 1956 starring Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews. When it transferred to London's West End it had a record-breaking run before being turned into an Oscar-winning film featuring Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn.

Two of York's most popular performers lead the cast – Rory Mulvihill plays Higgins, and Eliza is Toni Feetenby, whose previous roles with Pick Me Up include Joyce in Betty Blue Eyes and the Baker's Wife in Into The Woods.

Director Robert Readman has assembled a strong supporting cast including Mark Hird as Colonel Pickering, Andy Stone as Alfred Doolittle, Sam Hird as lovelorn Freddy Eynsford-Hill, and Sandy Nicholson as Mrs Pearce.
