The North West Theatre Company’s production of the classic play PYGMALION will open this Saturday night at the Roxy theatre. George Bernard Shaw’s comedy considers love, social classes, language and manners in a way that is as vibrant today as it was when it first played a century ago.
The story of PYGMALION comes from the Greek classic tale of the sculptor, Pygmalion, who uses his skills to create a beautiful statue, Galatea. So beautiful is the statue that he falls in love with it only to find that Galatea does not feel the same way about him.
She must also endure the opportunistic interference of her dustman father Alfred Doolittle (Rick Hutton). Crystal Cooper, John and Wendy Wearne, Nic Hutton and Jessica Russell-Davies make up the cast on stage.
Performances will be at 8:00pm on the evenings of Saturday November 9 and 16, and as matinees at 2:00pm on Sunday November 10 and 17. Tickets are available through the Bingara Visitor Information Office on 6724 0066 or online.
Rick Hutton on 0428 255380 or the Producer of PYGMALION, the NWTC President, John Wearne, on 0418 419684.
