What is it about?
It is about the Banks, an England family from the 1910's, who are so caught up in their own lives, that have almost forgotten they are raising two children. Jane and Michael Banks have sent many nannies 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. The dance numbers are breathtaking dance numbers and the stagecraft is spectacular. Mary Poppins teaches about how important is to have a close a family and how much love you should have for each other! Mary Poppins is a wonderful play to take the kids and you'll want to go back and see it again!
