The theater department continues its Storybook Season with the musical Mary Poppins. Re-envisioned for the stage by Disney and Cameron Mackintosh, this Broadway musical brings to life our favorite nanny Mary Poppins and her beloved yet challenging charges Jane and Michael Banks. The stage version closely follows the movie version as Mary Poppins flies in to help a troubled family, The Banks Family, find their way back to love, happiness and what is truly important – each other. Filled with music, dancing, and magic, this production is sure to delight and surprise you every step of the way!
We love the musical season because we get to feature so many talented and hard-working students and this production is no different! We will feature over 120 St. Mary’s students on and off stage including acting, costumes, hair/makeup, and magic makers. This year we are excited to feature one of our seniors, Stella Coomes, as a guest choreographer for the beloved tap number “Step in Time.” With over 10% of the student body involved, we hope you can find some time to support our dedicated and talented theater artists! Although the Broadway musical does not have any dancing cartoon penguins, we are certain you will love all of the magic we have planned.
We hope you can come take a stroll in the park, fly a kite and dance in the stars with us!
Directed by Shannon More, Musical Direction by Kathy Briggs, Choreographed by Jessica Zoller with special guest tap choreographer senior Stella Coomes!
