The students of North Hills High School rehearse for their upcoming spring musical "My Fair Lady."

North Hills High School will be performing “My Fair Lady” this spring.

The entire cast is ecstatic about this year’s musical choice. Lead Stephanie Higgins certainly has no complaints.

“I have loved this show since I was a little girl. I love the accents, the music and the energy our cast brings to it,” said Higgins.

Higgins, who plays Eliza Doolittle, enjoys getting to portray a range of emotions.

“Eliza is a very emotional girl. Her ups and downs are very extreme, but it is very fun to portray all her emotions, from dreamy moments to fits of anger,” said Higgins.

Doolittle’s extreme personality is balanced out by Professor Henry Higgins, played by Michael O’Brien.

“I like the entire persona of Higgins. He is a linguistics professor, and he’s so sarcastic and witty. I love it,” said O’Brien.

O’Brien also loves working with his amazing cast.

“Acting is reacting, so anything I do is really just a byproduct of working with such great talent, like Stephanie Higgins,” said O’Brien.

This isn’t the first time that O’Brien and Higgins have worked harmoniously together. The two have both performed in the Junior Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh.

The show will run March 22-24 and March 29-31.
