Theatre of Anthem Presents
Theatre of Anthem (MTA) announces their upcoming production of Mary
Poppins, a practically perfect musical that is capturing hearts in a
whole new way! 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 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 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 she has a profound effect upon. Even grown-ups
can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can
happen if you let it."
“So enjoying this trip down memory
lane!” says Director Laura O’Meara. “The story of Mary Poppins awed and
delighted me as child, and I'm so excited to bring it to life on MTA's
stage with this amazingly talented cast!"
The talented cast, comprised of award winners and nominees
ages 11 - adult, presents the show April 28 – May 8 in Anthem. The
