THE LATEST FROM BERKELEY PLAYHOUSE
Mary Poppins

Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the 1964 Disney film, MARY POPPINS is simply sweet, like a spoonful of sugar. Set in 1910 England, young troublemakers Jane and Michael Banks have duped their way through so many nannies! However, when Mary Poppins suddenly arrives at their door, the Banks family learns — through magic and wonder — how to value each other again. This Tony Award-winning musical includes a score filled with timeless classics such as “Feed the Birds,” “Jolly Holiday,” “Step in Time,” and the Academy Award-winning “Chim-Chim Cher-ee”.
