In October of 1976, the curtains rose at the Old Opera House for the opening night of "My Fair Lady," and the grand reopening of the theater house itself. Now, 12 years later, the curtains will once again rise to the tune of "My Fair Lady," a musical filled with wit, humor and roman- ce. The musical revolves around a professor of phonetics, who transforms a guttersnipe into a lady by refining her speech. Henry Higgins, the professor, focuses on speech exercises in which Eliza Doolittle, the guttersnipe, learns to say, "The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain," like a lady. However, the crucial test of Eliza's newly-acquired language lies among the upper crust and elite. Will she pass as a duchess at the embassy ball? The play is filled with music and singing of such songs as, "Wouldn't It Be Lovely," i "I Could Have Danced All Night," and "Get Me to the Church On Time." "My Fair Lady" is noted at the Old Opera House for bringing life back into the theater house in 1976 after it had been condemned in 1950. The theater was originally built in 1917. Thirty years ago, the Old Opera House might have been considered a pigeon roost and somewhat of an eyesore. One might also recall the tacky wooden chairs that were used for the audience. However, the four years of renovation during the mid-70's has served its purpose in continuing to bring live theater to Jeffer- son County. "My Fair Lady" will open Friday, Sept. 30 at 8 p.m. at the Old Opera House Theater. Other evening shows will run at 8 p.m. on Oct. 1, 7, and 8th, and two matinees will run Oct. 2 and 9th at 2:30 p.m. i i i IVillingham . tVolf ord Nuptials August 27 St. John's United Church of Christ, Clear Spring, Md., was the scene August 27 at 4 o'clock in the afternoon, of the marriage of Tammy Nicole Will- ingham and John L.
