Musical Theatre of Anthem Presents Mary Poppins  

Musical 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 award-winning production staff includes Director Laura O’Meara, Vocal Director Karen Blanzy, Choreographer Cydney Trent, Stage Manager Sarah Brayer and Assistant Stage Manager Jessica Kishbaugh.
