NBYT will bring a “supercalifragilistic” musical to life as it produces Disney’s Mary Poppins Jr. this summer. Based on one of the most popular Disney films of all time and the Broadway musical that played for over 2,500 performances, Disney’s Mary Poppins Jr. is a “practically perfect” musical experience for young actors and audiences of all ages!
Nearly fifty children and teens from throughout Connecticut will participate on stage and behind the scenes. In addition to the magical nanny and the world’s favorite chimney sweep, the cast will play the Banks family, their household staff, bankers, parkgoers, kite flyers, and Londoners of 1910. The score features favorite Mary Poppins tunes including A Spoonful of Sugar, Jolly Holiday, Let’s Go Fly a Kite, Feed the Birds, Chim Chiminey, and, of course, Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
Mary Poppins Jr. will be performed at Plainville High School at 47 Robert Holcomb Way in Plainville.
