The Pierrettes under the direc
tion of Miss Elizabeth Riegner will
present Pygmalion by George Ber
nard Shaw on March 14 and 15.
This play about a Professor of
Phonetics who tries to turn a
flower girl from the streets of
London into a duchess in six
■months contains many comic prob-
, lems which are resolved with both
■humor and skill in the brilliant dia
It has been produced many times
and has challenged famous actres
ses of the stage, such as Lynn
Fontaine and Gertrude Lawrence
in the most recent production of
1946, and, as a movie, Wendy
■Hiller starring with Leslie Howard.
The. Pierrettes introduce two new
actors to their Salem audience:
Dr. William Todd and Douglas
Faley. Bryan Balfour, a popular
and well-known member of the
^roup, assumes the double role of
scene designer and male lead.
This period play has necessitated
a large costume crew both for de
signing and assembling properties,
and the three stage sets contribute
to the vivid effect.
