Mary Poppins (Disney's and Cameron Mackintosh's)

The adventures of the world’s most magical nanny finally came to the stage four decades after her Academy Award winning film debut. Combining elements of the beloved motion picture with additional characters and elements from the books of P. L. Travers, this is an extravagant and charming all-family musical. MTWichita offers a beautifully designed and articulated all- inclusive package of sets, props, costumes, and backdrops, which evoke both the atmosphere of the film and of the original watercolor book illustrations.
