Pygmalion now playing

MOUNT DESERT — Recent Mount Desert Island High School graduate Mary Paola stars as Eliza Doolittle in “Pygmalion” by George Bernard Shaw at Acadia Repertory Theatre beginning July 10.

In this classic play, Professor Henry Higgins, a linguist, takes on flower-seller Doolittle, promising to transform her into a member of upper-class society. Dustin Whitehead, who played Pastor Paul in last year’s production of “The Christians,” will play Higgins. Those who remember Cheryl Willis’s star turn as Doolittle will be thrilled to learn that she will be returning to play Professor Higgins’ imperious mother.

The show will run until July 22.
