The final production in the Bonstelle Theatre!

Pop open your umbrellas and take flight with us as everyone’s favorite, and practically perfect, nanny takes the stage in this supercalifragilisticexpialidocious musical adventure.

Mary Poppins is an enchanting story that follows the Banks family as they struggle with life in Edwardian England just after the turn of the 19th century. The children, Jane and Michael, are terribly ill-behaved. Mrs. Banks is lonely and bereft, aching for dreams long ignored. And Mr. Banks just wants to live an orderly, well-established life. Helping them is the mysterious nanny who can talk to birds, magically transform a gloomy park into a painterly scene, and, just maybe, with a spoonful of sugar, get the Banks back on track.

Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins delighted Broadway audiences for over 2,500 performances and received nominations for nine Olivier and seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

A mixture of irresistible story, unforgettable songs, breathtaking dance numbers and theatrical magic, Mary Poppins takes flight at the Bonstelle Theatre, April 10 and continues through April 19.

This show is best enjoyed by children ages 5 and older. We do not recommend bringing children younger than five years old.
