Winds in the east, mist coming in. Like something is brewin' and about to begin. MARY POPPINS flies onto the CES stage in this "practically perfect" production! Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's MARY POPPINS is an enchanting mixture of an irresistible story topped with unforgettable songs and sewn together with breathtaking dance numbers, (tap and everything I assure you!)

"Jane and Michael Banks" played by Remi Waguespak and Ryder Clark

The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many nanny's packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she teaches 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 upon whom she has a profound effect. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "anything can happen if you let it."
