In March, the Harrison High School Footlight Players proudly presented the classic musical Me and My Girl. The original book and lyrics are by L. Arthur Rose and Douglas Furber (revised book by Stephen Fry with contributions by Mike Ockrent) and music by Noel Gay. Me and My Girl was presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
The show revolves around an unapologetically unrefined cockney gentleman named Bill who learns that he is the 14th heir to the Earl of Hareford. However, he will only receive his inheritance if Sir John and the Duchess approve of him. The Duchess feels that with a little grooming, Bill will be suitable to inherit the title – and the money. However, she insists that Bill break up with his cockney girlfriend, Sally. Bill refuses to accept the title if he cannot keep Sally as his girl. Eventually, Sally is groomed to become more lady-like. Thus, Bill is allowed to inherit the title and keep his girl. (Synopsis courtesy of Stage Agent)
A large cast and crew received raves from the audience after each performance.
