National Youth Theater Presents Mary Poppins
THE WOODLANDS, TX – National Youth Theater (NYT) announces their upcoming production of Mary Poppins, a practically perfect musical based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film.
Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins delighted Broadway audiences for over 2,500 performances and received nominations for nine Olivier and seven TONY Awards, including Best Musical.
The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many nannies packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach 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 she has a profound effect upon. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that “Anything can happen if you let it.”
The talented cast, comprised of actors ages 8-19, presents the show November 8-10 at Lone Star College – Tomball, Performing Arts Center located at 30555 Tomball Parkway in Tomball. The directorial team includes director Aimee Bowles, assistant director Holly Jasso, vocal director David Horn, and choreographer Alex Spencer.
