For this highly anticipated theatrical event, Disney and Cameron Mackinstosh have teamed up to produce Mary Poppins
, bringing to life Pamela Travers' fantastic stories filled with eccentric and perceptive characters whose adventures have delighted every generation since they first appeared in the 1930's.
Is it Jane and Michael Banks who need a nanny? Or is it their parents who actually need more looking after? Only one thing is certain - after Mary Poppins
arrives at 17 Cherry Tree Lane, with her no-nonsense approach to making the right choices in life, nothing will ever be the same again.
The witty, imaginative books, aglint with magic and many of the much loved Sherman Brothers songs from Walt Disney's Academy Award-winning motion picture have been re-invented and created afresh by Academy Award-winning writer Julian Fellowes and Olivier Award-winning songwriters George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, who have also composed several terrific new songs to add to a score that already boasts more than a spoonful of sugar.
Some of the theatre's finest creative talents have been brought together to realise Mary Poppins
on the stage. Richard Eyre, Matthew Bourne and Stephen Mear will bring to life the most famous, timeless and practically perfect nanny in an extraordinary and visually magical world created by Bob Crowley - a world where anything can happen if you let it!
