Home and Community Options: My Fair Lady Tickets/Registration

Home and Community Options: My Fair Lady @ Page Theatre

Home and Community Options presents
My Fair Lady

Lerner and Loewe’s My Fair Lady is that rare musical by which all others are measured. Eliza Doolittle is a young flower seller with an unmistakable Cockney accent which keeps her in the lower rungs of Edwardian society. When Professor Henry Higgins tries to teach her how to speak like a proper lady, an unlikely friendship begins to flourish.

Home and Community Options provides support and residential services to individuals with disabilities, enabling them to live full lives in the community. These productions were established to support the needs of HCO in serving people with disabilities; they have become a part of local community life and bring together some of the strongest talent in the Winona area. HCO strives to provide a quality musical production that integrates individuals with disabilities into the performing arts as a means of enhancing life in our community for all.

The popularity of the Home and Community Options‘ musical productions continues to grow, providing high quality and family friendly performances to sell-out crowds year after year. While HCO’s yearly production acts as a fundraiser to assist them in providing much needed services, supplies, and equipment for those they support, its primary purpose is to promote the inclusion of individuals with disabilities in our daily lives. Participation in this community theater event as cast members, backstage crew members, and other volunteering roles behind the scenes helps those HCO serves build lasting relationships with their neighbors while gaining skills in independence and daily living. HCO’s musical is just one example that individuals with disabilities offer valued contributions to society.

Adult: $20
Senior (62 and over): $15
Child (12 and under): $12
