Broadway Bound: Mary Poppins JR.

Broadway Bound: Mary Poppins JR.- SOLD OUT!

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.

This two-week musical theatre program provides the opportunity to experience every aspect of staging a musical with onstage and backstage roles for everyone – singing, dancing, acting, creating sets, and assembling costumes – all in just 10 days!  These shows are fully-licensed productions taught in a child-friendly musical theatre format.
