About this excursion

£110 per person (Early bird booking £100 if booked before 28 November)

The show will make an ideal Christmas gift or something to cheer you up during the dark Sonning Millwinter days just after the holiday season.

The musical follows the story of Eliza Dolittle, a Cockney flower girl who speaks in ‘yowls’ and not ‘vowels’, who is plucked off the streets of London by the arrogant Professor Higgins who declares he can pass her off as a Duchess in six months.

It also includes a score including songs Wouldn’t It Be Loverly, On The Street Where You Live, I Could Have Danced All Night and Get Me To The Church On Time.

Directors, designers, actors, musicians, of the highest quality help maintain its exceptional reputation. Many new plays premiere here from established to young up-and-coming writers. All productions are created on the premises. Nothing is ‘brought in’. Rehearsal rooms buzz with activity. Sets are built in our workshop. Costumes designed and made in their wardrobe. In their kitchens, fresh food is prepared daily. And they say proudly “with not a microwave in sight”.
