WHAT IS “MARY POPPINS”?

The Banks family has been searching for years for a suitable nanny for their two unruly children, Jane and Michael. When Mary Poppins arrives to answer an ad for a nanny that the children wrote but never sent, it becomes clear that the Banks home will never be the same. Through a series of adventures and trials, Mary, her friend Bert, and a host of eccentric characters help the Banks family realize how much they love and need each other.  Classic songs such as Chim Chim Cher-ee, Step in Time, and A Spoonful of Sugar are joined by some newer tunes such as Practically Perfect and A Man Has Dreams to tell this Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious story. We hope you can be part of the journey!

As part of HCST’s “Summer of Disney” our Junior Show this year is Disney’s THE LION KING! Show dates will be June 15 and 16, 2017 at Long Reach High School. Please check our web site for details about auditions which will take place in March 2017.
