Stadium Theatre Audition Dates
Mary Poppins: The Supercalifragilistic Broadway Musical
Everyone's favorite practically perfect nanny takes the Stadium stage in this Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious musical adventure!
Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, 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.
The jack-of-all-trades, Bert, introduces us to London in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives in their living room. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family how to value each other again. With the classic songs by The Sherman Brothers, new toe-tappers by Stiles and Drewe (Honk!, Just So), and a heartwarming book by Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey), grown-ups and kids alike can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "anything can happen, if you let it" in this Supercalifragilistic Broadway Musical!
