ABOUT MARY POPPINS MUSICAL
Mary Poppins is Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's multi award-winning West End musical playing now in London's Prince Edward Theatre. The magical story of the world's beloved nanny is brilliantly brought to life on stage, adapted from PL Travers book series and the original 1965 film.
Mary Poppins is set in Edwardian London and follows the Banks family as they struggle to discipline their deviant children - with nanny after nanny fleeing the family from Cherry Tree Lane. However, following an advert for the perfect nanny in the paper posted by young Jane and Michael Banks, their world is soon turned upside down. Fixing misbehaviour with magic - and a spoonful of sugar or two - Mary Poppins arrives to transform the way the Banks family live forever.
The Mary Poppins West End production is second to none - think big musical numbers, dazzling choreography and incredible special effects. The theatre adaptation also includes the Sherman Brothers' famous songs such as Chim Chim Cher-ee, The Perfect Nanny, A Spoonful Of Sugar and Feed The Birds, along with new favourites Practically Perfect, Precision And Order, Playing The Game and Being Mrs Banks, written especially for the stage by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe.
Expect dancing on London rooftops at night, moving statues, magical talking shops and more in this theatre masterpiece - Mary Poppins is practically perfect in every way.
