Summer Youth Musical
 

We invite you and your family to jump through a magical painting into the fantastical world of Mary Poppins. The show is pure confectionary fun, with songs you know and love, like “Supercalifragilistic-expialidocious,” “A Spoon Full of Sugar,” “Chim Chim Cher-ee,” “Feed the Birds” and countless other merry melodies. All the fun of the film is brought to life on stage in a lavish production, chock full of dancing chimney sweeps, an eclectic array of colorful characters, spectacular singing, eye-popping sets and costumes, and of course, a flying nanny like none you’ve ever met.
