Mary Poppins

Based on P.I. Travers' cherished stories and the classic 1964 Walt Disney film, MARY POPPINS, currently one of London's biggest sensations, features the Sherman brothers' original Academy Award�-winning songs. In collaboration with Cameron Mackintosh, the show has been created by Academy Award�-winning screenwriter Julian Fellowes, who has written the book, and the Olivier� Award-winning team of George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, who have composed new songs and additional music and lyrics.



Olivier� Award-winning director Richard Lyre leads a dream team of vision and stagecraft, bringing to life the story of the Banks family and their magical nanny. Co-direction and choreography is by Olivier� Award-winner Matthew Bourne, set and costume design is by Tony Award� winner Bob Crowley, co-choreography is by Olivier� Award-winner Stephen Mear, and lighting design is by Olivier� Award-winner Howard Harrison.



MARY POPPINS marks the first collaboration between Disney, producer of such acclaimed productions as THE LION KING, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST and TARZAN, and Cameron Mackintosh, legendary producer of record-breaking shows THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, CATS and LES MISERABLES.

It's midterms week at my first quarter of my senior year and I find myself reminiscing on my past three years. SCAD is very much a take it or leave it school. What I mean by that is SCAD has lots of events and extra opportunities to get more experience in your chosen field and hear from industry professionals. You can either take these opportunities and get the most out of your time at school or you can choose to not do any extra activities (and to be frank, miss out on some awesome things).
