Kansas Summer Theatre staging ‘My Fair Lady’

July 8, 2012


The rain in Spain is coming to Kansas University.

Kansas Summer Theatre is putting on a production of “My Fair Lady” this month.

The production will run Thursdays to Sundays from July 12 to July 22. Performance times are at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays to Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sundays.

John Staniunas, KU associate professor of theater, will direct and choreograph the production. Staniunas has directed 125 musicals, including “South Pacific” and “The Fantasticks.”

KU’s production of “My Fair Lady” includes a five-piece orchestra and 10 cast members who will play multiple roles.

“Our production of ‘My Fair Lady’ takes advantage of a unique jewel box concept that brings new energy and focus to this classic American musical,” Staniunas said. “The ‘jewel box’ is an open cluster of stars in the constellation of Crux described as a casket of variously colored precious stones.”

Tickets can be purchased at the University Theatre Ticket Office, 864-3982, or online at Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for students. A family package, including two adult tickets and two children tickets, is $40.
