The “practically perfect” 70-minute musical is an exciting stage adaptation of the
classic tales of Mary Poppins. Audiences will join the Banks Family as they
encounter adventure after fun-filled adventure with their curious new nanny, Mary
Poppins. Adapted especially for young performers, this musical includes favorite
Sherman bothers songs such as “A Spoonful of Sugar,” “Feed the Birds,” and
“Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” as well as wonderful new songs by George Stiles
and Anthony Drewe. With colorful characters and an irresistible score, MARY
POPPINS JR. is sure to be a crowd-pleaser for all ages!
This year’s program will once again be directed by Jordan Jones and Christine
Ashbaugh. “Jordan and Christine create such a wonderful environment for our
talented young students to thrive,” said Patty Gosselin, HCCT Executive Director.
