West Valley City Division of Arts and Culture & Utah Cultural Celebration Center Present Mary Poppins, the Broadway Musical. George and Winifred live at Number 17, Cherry Tree Lane with their misbehaved children, whose latest nanny has just quit with a fit. Enter Mary Poppins, the “practically perfect” nanny who teaches with magic and bonds with the children as no other nanny has. When Mary suddenly leaves the position, and Winifred hires George’s childhood nanny to take on the job, sending George and the children fleeing from the house, Mary becomes more valuable than ever. With patience, kindness, and a little bit of magic, Mary and her friend Bert help the family set things right – maybe more right than they’d ever been before.
Featuring a cast of locals, Marry Poppins, the Broadway Musical is Co-Directed by Jim Smith and Margene Conde. Choreography and Production by Margene Conde.
