Why See Mary Poppins?
It's a jolly holiday with Mary!
Everyone's favourite nanny has landed in London for another magical run in the West End! Join Mary Poppins, Bert, Jane and Michael as the wonderful story of Mary Poppins comes back to life on stage! Based on P.L. Travers cherished stories and the classic 1964 Walt Disney film the stage musical is full of our favourite songs including, 'Jolly Holiday', 'Step In Time' and 'Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious', as well as featuring brand new songs that will keep you toe tapping and singing along all the way home.
Disney's production can boast of an incredible creative team with Richard Eyre and Matthew Bourne leading the musical as co-directors, and with Stephen Mear co-choreographing the musical alongside Matthew Bourne. Zizi Strallen is set to reprise her role as matriarchal Mary (played the role in the 2015 UK tour) with theatre's Golden Boy Charlie Stemp returning to the West End as the loveable Bert.
What is Mary Poppins about?
Jane and Michael Banks have chased away all their previous nanny's, much to the despair of their parents, George and Winifred. When the children's letter explaining what they want in a nanny is ripped up and thrown on the fire by their father, their hopes of finding a kind nanny is lost. That is however until the wind changes and the mysterious Mary Poppins turns up at the door along with adventure and magic. To George's exasperation, Mary Poppins becomes a beloved member of the family, teaching the Bank's a lot more than they think...

Mary Poppins first appeared on the London stage back in the early naughties where it ran for three years before it headed over to Broadway where it won a Tony Award for best musical and ran for almost six years!
