Photo Coverage: The Cast of MARY POPPINS Celebrates Opening Night

The production of Mary Poppins at the John W. Engeman Theater celebrated its opening this weekend, and BroadwayWorld was there to catch the magic!

Celebrate the holiday season with MARY POPPINS! Based on the classic Disney film, this is the story of a mysterious nanny who magically appears at the Banks household in Edwardian London to care for Jane and Michael Banks. Adventure abounds as she whisks them away to meet dancing chimney sweeps, shopkeepers and an array of colorful characters. Featuring an irresistible story, breathtaking dance numbers and beloved songs such as the Academy Award-winning "Chim Chim Cher-ee," "A Spoonful of Sugar," "Feed the Birds," "Step in Time" and "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious," audiences will have a "Jolly Holiday" with Mary and discover a world where "Anything Can Happen" if you let it.

MARY POPPINS is directed and choreographed by Drew Humphrey (Engeman Theater: Thoroughly Modern Millie, A Chorus Line, White Christmas (Choreographer)) and musically directed by MICHAEL HOPEWELL (NYC: Once We Lived Here (U.S. Premiere), Billy Bishop Goes to War (Starring Dan Butler), Rent).
