Sunshine Butterflies Charity Night - Pygmalion at Noosa Arts Theatre
Sunshine Butterflies Disability Charity has been selected as the beneficiary for the Noosa Arts Theatre Charity Night this October.
The famous show Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw, directed by Liza Park, is a classic romantic comedy that will be on show for the month of October at Noosa Arts Theatre.
Pygmalion follows the story of two older gentlemen, Professor Higgins, a scientist of phonetics, and Colonel Pickering, a linguist of Indian dialects who meet in the rain one night at Covent Garden. The first bets the other that he can, in a matter of months, convince London high society that the cockney-speaking Covent Garden flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, has been transformed into a woman as poised and well-spoken as a duchess.
Sunshine Butterflies' Community Development officer Heather Anderson said: “The Noosa Arts Theatre have been such amazing supporters of ours over the last 12 months. They generously hosted our Drama Kings and Queens Christmas concert last year when our event was cancelled due to COVID. We are incredibly grateful to be the charity partner for this show.”
The Charity Gala night will take place on 15 October, with all proceeds from ticket sales going to Sunshine Butterflies Disability Charity, helping to support those living with disability and their families.
There will be a raffle on the night with prizes donated from Gibsons Noosa.
