The charming narrator, Bert (Anthony Flamminio of Drexel Hill) introduces us to the extraordinary Mary Poppins (Michaela Henry of Springfield), who is “Practically Perfect” in every way!  Mary is the new nanny to Jane (Noel Guidetti of Havertown) and Michael (Zach Graaf of Havertown) Banks.  The Banks family doesn’t have the best track record with nannies, but, with Mary Poppins they go on intriguing adventures and learn to value the world around them.  Mysterious Mary Poppins teaches the Banks family, and audiences alike, that “Anything Can Happen If You Let It.”


The show runs seventy minutes with no intermission and is ideal for ages four and up. The theater offers free parking and free babysitting on site for the very young. Young audience members are encouraged to come early for a fun activity and to stay after the show for a meet-and-greet with the performers.


Stacy Moscotti, the director of Disney’s Mary Poppins, Jr. speaks about the show. “Mary Poppins, Jr. is the timeless classic tale that you know and love! It’s full of all the rousing and heartwarming songs you remember. Everyone in the family will enjoy the wonderful story of the Banks family and how a magical nanny sweeps into their lives. It really is full of so much compassion, heart, joy. It’s sure to be a memorable and magical time for all!”
