Session 2: Mary Poppins Jr.

Based on one of the most popular Disney movies of all time and the Broadway musical that
played for over 2,500 performances and received multiple Olivier and Tony Awards
nominations, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's Mary Poppins is capturing hearts
in a whole new way: as a practically perfect Broadway Junior musical.

 

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."  Students will work in the morning on the foundation techniques of performance with music, dance and acting classes and then use the skills they learn in rehearsal for Mary Poppins in the afternoons.
