About the Show
Things are not going well for the Banks family. Children Michael and Jane are out of control and have run off yet another nanny. In the most peculiar way, a mysterious, but practically perfect, woman appears at the doorstep — none other than Mary Poppins herself! Though she has a seemingly daunting task, with a little magic and some help from Bert, an adorable chimneysweep, the Banks’ children have their world turned upside down.
For the “re-boot” of our 2020 production, Town is pleased to have Kerri Roberts (West Side Story) reprise her role as the nanny in charge, Mary Poppins, with Jeremy Hansard (Into the Woods) as the endearing chimneysweep Bert. Ellie Roberts (Frozen Jr.) brings the very best of sass as Jane with Kyran Burkett (Newsies) following close behind as Michael. Patrick McCormick (Mamma Mia) seemingly rules the household as George Banks while Hannah Thompson (Into the Woods) is caught in a struggle between playing wife and being her true self as Winifred Banks. Our talent-packed cast has worked hard to “Step in Time!” They’ll show you that “Anything Can Happen If You Let It.”
Shows are at 7:30 PM Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays (Nov. 7 & 14). 3:00 PM matinees will be on Saturdays (Oct. 24 & 31) and Sundays.
Mary Poppins is sponsored by Hood Construction, Jim Hudson Automotive and First Citizens Bank.
