Mary Poppins the musical is all set to arrive in Niagara Falls! It will be staged by Linus Hand Productions at the Fallsview Theatre, Scotiabank Convention Centre in December.
From Film to the Stage
One of Disney’s most endearing and popular movies, Mary Poppins garnered several accolades including five Academy Awards when it released in 1964. Julie Andrews who played the main protagonist Mary Poppins won the Best Actress award for her spectacular performance. Subsequently, the movie has also been adapted for the stage. Based on the books written by P.L Travers as well as the 1964 movie, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Broadway musical Mary Poppins has been winning the hearts of audiences with its wonderful story and superlative music score. It has won 9 Olivier and 7 Tony awards including Best Musical. It’s a play for all ages and children especially will love the fantasy-driven plot.
Mary Poppins Plot
The heart-warming story is about the lives of the wealthy Banks family in London. The parents are busy with their work and the children Jane and Michael are in need of a nanny. The kids are quite a handful and the Banks are scouting for someone strict to handle the kids but fate has other things in store. Enter the umbrella-wielding, magical Mary Poppins flying in from the sky as the solution to the family’s nanny problems.
From then on, it’s an enjoyable ride for the children as well as the audiences as Mary Poppins introduces them to a magical lifestyle. The children learn to do their work in a fun way and have unique experiences and meet interesting characters along with their nanny. Will Mary Poppins change the dynamics of the Banks family? Will the grown-ups and children learn to look at life differently? Is there a lesson to be learnt? The musical sets forth to entertain audiences who will end up believing the words of Mary Poppins, “anything can happen if you let it”.
