The production opens with Bert, the jack-of-all trades, introducing the audience to 1901 England and the troubled Banks family. 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 how to value one another again.
Nominated for seven Tony Awards, “Mary Poppins” includes a score filled with timeless classics such as “A Spoonful of Sugar,” “Step in Time” and the Academy Award-winning “Chim-Chim Cher-ee.”
The show stars Cara Statham Serber (most recently seen as Maria in the theater’s production of “The Sound of Music” last season), Buddy Reeder as Bert, Eddie Curry as George Banks and local young performers Kennedy Martin as Jane Banks and Logan Sejas as Michael Banks.
