Synopsis: Based on one of the most popular Disney movies of all time and the Broadway musical that played for over 2,500 performances and received multiple Olivier and Tony Awards nominations, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins captures hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect Broadway Junior musical!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 dance numbers. This show showcases a strong, iconic young female performer, as well as unique special effects and illusions.
Youth ages 5-17 may chose only 1 audition time. Come prepared with 30-45 seconds of a Broadway/Disney song. (Please no modern pop songs). Choosing a song from Mary Poppins is acceptable. You may sing acapella or have background only vocals on your phone. There will also be cold readings from the script. For ages 5-8, we will have other activities besides cold reading for their audition.
Tuesday, May 5th at 6pm we will have our first rehearsal/parent meeting where we will be handing out scripts. This will take place upstairs at the theater. Our first major rehearsal will be June 1st at 6pm. Once the show is cast, we will make a more definitive rehearsal schedule. Most rehearsals will be late afternoon to early evening during the week and on Saturdays. Please bring a list of all known conflicts you may have during the summer. This will help us when making the schedule. Conflicts such as vacation or camp will NOT keep you from being cast. We will do our best to work around them. Starting the week of July 20th, everyone must be at every rehearsal.
