Mary Poppins takes to the stage
The books have been around since the 1930s and the 1964 Disney film continues to remain a favourite with movie fans of all ages, but the Mary Poppins is a brand new way to enjoy this favoured tale. Taking cues from both the novels and movie, this musical is filled with beloved songs from the musical film, with a host of new melodies courtesy of the Sherman Brothers. The first West End run of the Mary Poppins musical kicked off in late 2004 at the Prince Edward Theatre. The musical was an instant hit with audiences, with packed out seats and a bevvy of awards. The first actress to play Mary in the musical, Laura Michelle Kelly, won an Olivier Award for her performance in 2005. Even the original Mary Poppins herself, Julie Andrews, commended the show and its performers with high praise.
After continued success in London, Mary Poppins quickly moved to stake its claim on Broadway. Almost all of the same creative team remained in place for this stateside turn, with only a few changes from the original version. Once again, the Broadway version of the Disney classic proved a success, racking up no less than seven Tony Award nominations.

Even for those who've seen the movie a hundred times over, the Mary Poppins musical offers plenty of fresh content that will excite and entertain. All your favourite songs from the movie are there, including "A Spoonful of Sugar", "Let's Go Fly a Kite" and of course, "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious".
