The piece tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a flower girl who takes speech lessons from professor Henry Higgins so that she can pass as an elegant lady.

Show times are 8 p.m. today and Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $15 for adults, $14 for seniors and $10 for students through college. For more information, visit www.kokomocivictheatre.com.
