Mary Poppins is set to fly over the rooftops of London and onto the stage at Stages Theatre Company this holiday season! Disney and Cameron Mackintosh‘s Mary Poppins JR., based on the classic P.L. Travers stories and the Walt Disney film, is playing at Stages Theatre from November 16 through December 27, 2018.
This magical, high-flying, family-friendly musical production is approximately 80 minutes in length (with a 10 minute intermission) and is recommended for children of all ages. Visit stagestheatre.org for performance dates and times, or call the Box Office at (952) 979-1111, option 4. Tickets are $18 for children ages 2-17; $25 for adults; and $21 for seniors, ages 60+.
“Stages Theatre Company’s holiday show has become a tradition for families, and this one is no exception”, said Sandy Boren-Barrett, Artistic Director. “This is a time of year when we look for opportunities to share memory-making experiences with the young people in our lives, and our productions provide a unique shared experience that will last beyond your time in the theatre.”
The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have discouraged many nannies before Mary Poppins arrives. The curious new nanny takes the family on magical and memorable adventures, teaching them that “Anything can happen if you let it.” Adapted especially for the young and the young at heart, this musical includes favorite Sherman brothers’ songs such as “A Spoonful of Sugar,” “Feed the Birds,” and “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.”
“Mary Poppins Jr. is full of the spectacle and quality our patrons have come to expect, and yes, Mary WILL fly”, said Boren-Barrett. With colorful characters and an irresistible score, Mary Poppins JR. is sure to be a crowd-pleaser for all ages!
