Based on one of the most popular Disney movies of all time and the Broadway musical that played for over 2,500 performances and received multiple Olivier and Tony Awards nominations, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's Mary Poppins is capturing hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect Broadway Junior 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 a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family members 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 upon whom she has a profound effect. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen if you let it."
Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's Mary Poppins JR. is an enchanting mixture of irresistible story, unforgettable songs and breathtaking dance numbers. This show is a perfect opportunity to showcase a strong, iconic female performer, as well as unique special effects and illusions.
The camp will be held July 8-19 at Manship Theatre. Please note: Camp is NOT held on Saturday, July 13 and Sunday, July 14.
Private auditions for specific roles will be held prior to the start of camp on Saturday, May 4, 2019 from 9:30-1:30pm. The auditions will help us learn your child’s strengths, so we can cast them in the perfect part. Auditions will be held in the Hartley/Vey Studio. Once the show is cast, children will be able to pick up their script and music CD in order to prepare for the start of camp. Everyone must be off book (lines and lyrics memorized) at the start of camp.
Director’s Note: Please know that it is incredibly important that your child be in attendance each day of the camp. We will be moving very fast learning music, choreography, and blocking.
Friday, July 19th: 8:30am arrival for a 9:00am start. Dress Rehearsals will be during the day with two performances Friday, July 19th at 5:30pm and 7:30pm. Children will be wearing their camp T-shirts the day of the performance.
