Celebrate your “Jolly Holliday” by flying over the rooftops of London with the quirky and mystical Mary Poppins. The stage version of the classic Disney film, reconceived by Julian Fellowes (the creator of Downton Abbey), retains Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman’s toe-tapping score while emphasizing the darker side of P.L. Travers’ fantastical take on the dangers of capitalism, privilege, and forgetting the magic of childhood. Continuing Quintessence’s tradition of rethinking children’s classics with an edge, this “Spoonful of Sugar” is the perfect medicine for spoiled brats of all ages.
From the adjudicators: "As a lifelong fan of Mary Poppins this was a very exciting and joyful production. Mary Poppins is a role that requires an actor to embody that character fully and Hanna Gafney is definitely up to the task and makes it look effortless. The supporting cast brings the world to life, especially the enthusiasm of the children playing Jane and Michael Banks. These kids are the heart of the show."
