Stage Coach puts on Mary Poppins this weekend and next

Graphics[1]One of the most popular Disney movies of all time is capturing hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect musical! Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins delighted Broadway audiences for over 2,500 performances and received nominations for nine Olivier and seven TONY Awards, including Best 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 how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael are not 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.”

The Stage Coach Players will perform this beloved musical this weekend and next. Dates and times are listed below. The Stage Coach Theatre is located at 126 S. 5th Street in Downtown DeKalb. Make a night of it and plan to eat dinner downtown while you’re there! Visit stagecoachers.com for more information
