THE Lytton Players' production of My Fair Lady at The Gordon Craig Theatre Stevenage was a delight to watch. Colourful and lively with great songs, it certainly left you feeling entertained.
Sharon Curtis as Eliza was stunning, and her transformation from common flower girl to lady quite hilarious. Her voice was a dream,
Her mentor, the arrogant Professor Henry Higgins, phonetic expert, was a joy to behold. Big, bombastic and beautifully played by Steve Wilks he captured the part superbly.
Adrian Johnson as the softly spoken gentleman, Colonel Pickering, was a brilliant foil for him as his accomplice in the makeover of Eliza.

The most laid back performance of the evening must go to Charlie Fletcher as Eliza's father, Alfred Doolittle, a hard drinker and womaniser, not adverse to a little bit of blackmail, who is forced into marriage through unintentionally inheriting money. His rendition of Get me to the Church on Time with the Company was superb. I thoroughly enjoyed his cheeky personality.
Richard Evans played Freddy Eynsford-Hill smitten by Eliza's beauty and fashionable new speech. They meet at the Ascot races in a short but impressive scene.
