Mary Poppins Jr
The Faculty of Creative Arts would like to invite you to this year’s Summer Musical ‘Mary Poppins Jr’, which will take place between 27th and 29th June in the Arena at the Borough Road site – Doors will open from 7pm and the performance will start at 7.30pm.
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 members how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren’t 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.”
Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins JR. is an enchanting mixture of irresistible story, unforgettable songs and breath-taking dance numbers. This show is a perfect opportunity to showcase a strong, iconic female performer, as well as unique special effects and illusions.
This highly ambitious venture involves a cast of actors, singers and dancers supported by a technical crew, ranging from Year 7 to Year 10 and we are asking for lots of support from parents, pupils, governors, friends of the Academy and local primary schools within the community.
The students and staff have been working hard on the production since March and we hope you’ll be able to join us for the performances.
