The story of a magical nanny who has a song for everything, adapted from the classic P.L. Travers stories and the beloved Disney film
About This Deal
- General admission
Her arrival is almost as magical as her voice. Flying through the sky thanks to a strong wind and a talking umbrella, Mary Poppins lands on the doorstep of Number Seventeen Cherry Tree Lane right in time to save the Banks family from a nannyless day. From her bottomless carpetbag she pulls all the tricks of her trade—from a hatrack to “A Spoonful of Sugar”—necessary to shape up little Jane and Michael. But Mary isn’t all business. From leaping through a painting for a holiday to climbing a ladder to the stars, she brings her charges on adventure after adventure, uniting the family and getting “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” permanently stuck in their heads. Along the way, the trio encounters the charismatic Bert, a pack of energetic chimney sweeps, some dancing statues, and the Bird Woman, who inspires Mary to sing the winning ballad “Feed the Birds.”
Adapted from the Disney film, which earned Julie Andrews an Academy Award, and the classic P.L. Travers stories, Mary Poppins sees the “practically perfect in every way” nanny mend the cracks in the Banks family’s foundation and rescue Jane and Michael from a good deal of misery. Throughout the show, the cast celebrates all the songs and made-up words that established the Sherman Brothers as musical geniuses and delights in sophisticated stage effects to bring out Mary’s magic.
