Eliza Doolittle, portrayed by Mariah Moore, is a young flower seller with an unmistakable Cockney accent which keeps her in the lower rungs of Edwardian society. When Professor Henry Higgins, played by Jackson Kittrell, tries to teach her how to speak like a proper lady, an unlikely friendship begins to flourish.
