The street-smart Bert introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. The children, Jane and Michael, are out-of-control and have sent many a nanny packing. But that was before the wind changed and Mary Poppins drifted to their doorstep. Strict but fair, she takes the children out on many memorable adventures. But Jane and Michael aren't the only ones she has a profound effect upon… for even Mr. and Mrs. Banks will learn a lesson or two. Using a combination of common sense, imagination, and magic, Mary Poppins teaches the family their value to each other. As this mysterious nanny advises, "Anything can happen if you let it."

Based on the popular books by P. L. Travers and the beloved 1964 Disney film, Mary Poppins is a lively heartfelt musical that acknowledges the struggles of familial responsibilities – but also celebrates the special kind of magic of everyday life!

The performance will run 2:45 and is recommended for adults, teens, ‘tweens, youth and children 7+.
