Principal casting has been announced for Ogunquit Playhouse's production of My Fair Lady, to run August 13-September 6. Shaun Kerrison will direct.

The classic Lerner and Lowe musical, adapted from George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion, revolves around Henry Higgins, a Professor of Phonetics, who encounters Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl, at Covent Garden market. He declares to his friend Colonel Pickering that in three months he could transform Eliza into a duchess.

Tony winner Jefferson Mays stars as Higgins (the actor recently played that part in the Roundabout's Broadway revival of Pygmalion), with the cast also including Gail Bennett as Eliza, Nancy Dussault as Mrs. Higgins, Timothy Jerome as Doolittle, Will Ray as Freddie, and John Schuck as Pickering.
