    Pop open your umbrellas and take flight with us as everyone’s favorite — and practically perfect — nanny takes the stage in this supercalifragilisticexpialidocious musical adventure. Mary
    Poppins is an enchanting story that follows the Banks family as they struggle with life in Edwardian England just after the turn of the 19th century. The children, Jane and Michael, are terribly
    ill-behaved. Mrs. Banks is lonely and bereft, aching for dreams long ignored. And Mr. Banks just wants to live an orderly, wellestablished life. Helping them is the mysterious nanny who can
    talk to birds, magically transform a gloomy park into a painterly scene, and, just maybe, with a spoonful of sugar, get the Banks back on track. A mixture of irresistible story, unforgettable songs, breathtaking dance numbers and theatrical magic!
