All of London is shouting from the rooftops about this exciting stage adaptation of the classic tales of Mary Poppins (played by Mia Weber). Join the Banks family (Jane played by Leah Cuyler, Michael played by Kai Logan, Mr. Banks played by William Nusom, and Mrs. Banks played by Sydney Caso) as they encounter adventure after fun-filled adventure with their curious new nanny, Mary Poppins, as well as chimney sweep Bert (played by Brendan Harris). Adapted especially for young performers, this musical includes favorite Sherman brothers songs such as “A Spoonful of Sugar,” “Feed the Birds,” and “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” as well as wonderful new songs by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe. With colorful characters and an irresistible score, Mary Poppins JR. is sure to be a crowd-pleaser for all ages!

Working with director Terri Schulman, musical director Laura Harris, and choreographer Ann Schwenzer, more than 50 Thompson Brook School fifth and sixth graders have been rehearsing both on stage and behind the scenes in dozens of different roles since the end of December. The annual TBS Spring Musical is sponsored by the PTO. Proceeds from previous years’ productions have helped purchase such after school theatre wish list items as backstage headsets, character microphones, scenery, and props.
