MARY POPPINS to Land Onstage at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre, 5/15
Bring the family and get swept up with Disney's high-flying Mary Poppins, live on stage for the first time at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre. Based on one of the most popular Disney films of all time and opening May 15, this musical is nothing short of supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
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. Nominated for seven Tony Awards, Mary Poppins includes a score filled with timeless classics such as "A Spoonful of Sugar," "Step in Time" and the Academy Award-winning "Chim-Chim Cher-ee."
The New York Daily News called Mary Poppins 'Magical! A roof-raising, toe-tapping, high-flying extravaganza!' and USA Today called the show 'Irresistible," adding it's "a fresh fountain of youth that will make many a grown-up feel like a kid again.'
The Beef & Boards production stars Cara Statham Serber (most recently seen as Maria in The Sound of Music last season), Buddy Reeder as Bert, Eddie Curry as George Banks and local young performers Kennedy Martin as Jane Banks and Logan Sejas as Michael Banks.
