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.
Built in 2013. Beautifully designed and articulated by J Branson. Set pieces evoke the watercolor illustrations of P. L. Travers’ original book series. Package includes drops and scrims (55′ wide x 26′ high), designed for speedy transitions and somewhat flexible stage sizes, as well as several crew-operated special effects (magic carpetbag, kitchen, nursery elevator) with no automation required.
