Petula Clark and Joseph Millson Join The Cast of MARY POPPINS West End
Ms. Clark will portray The Bird Woman, and will sing the classic Sherman Brothers tune, "Feed the Birds". Producer Cameron Macintosh has also hinted that Ms. Clark will be doing 'something extra' in the show.

They join Zizi Strallen, returning to play the title role following great acclaim on the recent sell-out international tour, and Charlie Stemp as Bert, who recently gave an award-winning performance as Arthur Kipps in Cameron Mackintosh's production of Half A Sixpence.
