Flying back into the Prince Edward Theatre, step in time to musical theatre classics such as “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” and “Let’s Go Fly a Kite”. Telling the story of magical nanny Mary Poppins and cockney charmer Bert, it’s a family-friendly show that’s practically perfect in every way.

Set in Edwardian London, Mary Poppins arrives onto Cherry Tree Lane with a hand-written advertisement for a nanny from Jane and Michael Banks. Teaching moral lessons inside and outside of the house, the trio meet jolly jack-of-all-trades Bert.
The foursome have plenty of fun adventures, bringing their surroundings to life. But, when Mary leaves with hope the children can grow without her, life on Cherry Tree Lane changes. Wishing for Mary back won’t be easy, but Mary and her umbrella are a truly unforgettable pair that won’t be gone in a hurry.
