Three Nights of Movie Musicals
Join Eliza (Audrey Hepburn) as she learns how to properly enunciate the King's English, as taught by Professor Henry Higgins (Rex Harrison) in George Cukor's static adaptation of the famous, frolicsome Lerner and Loewe musical My Fair Lady (1964). Learn to play a trumpet or glockenspiel from tone-deaf con man charmer Professor Harold Hill (Robert Preston) as he puts the make on Marian the librarian (an impossibly pretty Shirley Jones) in Morton DaCosta's more animated film adaptation of Meredith Willson's ode to Americana, The Music Man (1962). Or sing along - it's allowed - as big Mamma Donna (Meryl Streep) attempts to determine who's the father of her about-to-be married daughter in the tone-deaf adaptation of Abba's obscenely successful jukebox musical Mamma Mia (2008). It's all happening this week during Three Nights of Movie Musicals. 8 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Miller Outdoor Theatre, 100 Concert Drive.

Tue., Aug. 18, 8 p.m.; Wed., Aug. 19, 8 p.m.; Thu., Aug. 20, 8 p.m., 2009
