Pygmalion – The Radio Play

Hello theatre fans! It has been a while hasn’t it? Right now our first priority is to see our members, patrons and loyal supporters safe and well, so that means not taking to the stage just yet. What it doesn’t stop us doing is entertaining you all and that’s exactly what we’re going to do with our radio play of the George Bernard Shaw classic Pygmalion.


This February, for one night only via Zoom, The Chameleons bring you the tale of Eliza Doolitle (Rachel Spolander), a humble flower girl. Join us for the events that follow her chance encounter with Colonel Pickering (Simon Crowley) and Professor Higgins(Robert Spolander) in the markets of Covent Garden. Can this stubborn Professor of Phonetics win his wager and transform this squashed cabbage leaf into a Duchess? If he can, what does the future hold for Eliza or indeed for her father Alfred (Charlie Wakely), the liveliest of dustmen? 

Shaw’s play, written in 1912 and brought to the screen in 1938 forms the basis of the well known Lerner and Loewe musical, My Fair Lady. Although our play doesn’t contain singing, ‘with a little bit of luck’, you’ll enjoy familiar dialogue and witty conversation in our abridged production.  

We’ll post details of how to watch very soon. All we ask of you to enjoy this experience is to make a donation to help the group continue to prouduce shows in the future. How do you do so? Well that’s nice and easy. You just click here:

Waiting

Like many people, the Chameleons are currently taking a pause whilst rehearsals and performances are not possible due to the Coronavirus outbreak. We’ll let you know as soon as we do when we have plans to start again! We hope all our friends and supporters are safe and well.

In the meantime, we’re always on the lookout for new members, so if you’ve always wanted to do something different, or just looking for a new group in the North-west London area, get in touch.

Finally, we know there’s a lot of good causes to support, but we would really value any support you can give us now. If you’re shopping online you can donate at no cost to yourself, or even sign up to our Friends scheme and make a donation.

Saturday night – Saturday night!
