Based on one of the most popular Disney movies of all time and the Broadway musical that played for over 2,500 performances and received multiple Olivier and Tony Awards nominations, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's Mary Poppins is capturing hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect Broadway Junior musical!
The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family members how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren't the only ones upon whom she has a profound effect. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen if you let it."
Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's Mary Poppins Jr. is an enchanting mixture of irresistible story, unforgettable songs and breathtaking dance numbers. With over 30 middle school students in roles and part of the ensemble, as well as high school students part of the production crew. Our talented students will be singing their hearts out as they bring the magic of Mary Poppins Jr. to life for an audience of eager fans. Come watch as they sing classics like "A Spoonful of Sugar" and "Practically Perfect in Every Way." And who knows? Maybe you'll even see one of our students flying across the stage!
