Mary Poppins is a musical play based on the children's books of P.L.Travers and the widely acclaimed 50-year-old movie bearing the same name. It opened on stage in London in December, 2004 and on Broadway nearly two years later.
The film was brought to the big screen by Walt Disney Productions in 1964; it starred Julie Andrews playing nanny Mary Poppins and Dick Van Dyke as her good friend Bert.
Released on August 27, 1964, it received thirteen Academy Award nominations and won five 1964 Oscars. But it lost out for Best Picture to My Fair Lady although grossing thirty percent more at the box office than the Audrey Hepburn/Rex Harrison movie. Both musicals are set in the distant past in London.
Mary Poppins (a "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" show) was performed on Broadway more than 2,500 times and it received nominations for nine Olivier and seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
Cast in the leading roles for the coming performances are Lauren Blackman as Mary Poppins and Leo Ash Evans as Bert. Richard Stafford is the director.
The songs include Feed the Birds, Jolly Holiday, Step in Time and Chim-Chim Cher-ee.
