One of the most popular Disney movies of all time is capturing hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect musical! Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins delighted Broadway audiences for over 2,500 performances and received nominations for nine Olivier and seven Tony Awards, including Best 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.”The Ocean City production features a professional cast of musical theatre performers under the direction of Mr. Dann Dunn and Flying by FOY will recreate the Broadway flying special effects. The incredible talents of over 25 musicians from the Ocean City POPS Orchestra will shine as they accompany the show under the direction of Mr. Jonathan Kreamer.Playing the title role of Mary Poppins will be Carin Lagerberg who portrayed the role last summer at Charleston Stage Company. She is originally from Knoxville, TN and holds a BFA in musical theatre from Samford University in Alabama.
