‘Mary Poppins Jr.’ set for Carson City performances
Wild Horse Children’s Theater presents the Northern Nevada premiere of Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s “Mary Poppins, Jr.” With unforgettable songs, breathtaking dance numbers and an irresistible story, this magical family musical is “practically perfect” for the start of the holiday season. “Mary Poppins, Jr.” opens Nov. 30 for two weekends at the Brewery Arts Center Performance Hall in Carson City.
Mary Poppins is the practically perfect nanny who helps us learn to take our medicine with a spoonful of sugar, find the silver lining in every situation and realize that sometimes we should just use the winds of change to go fly a kite. Mary brings order to the Banks’ household, takes Jane and Michael out on magical adventures and dispenses sage advice, such as “Anything can happen if you let it.” “Mary Poppins, Jr.” is full of fantasy and magic. The score features your favorite “Mary Poppins” songs including “A Spoonful of Sugar,” “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” “Jolly Holiday,” “Let’s Go Fly a Kite,” “Step in Time” and “Chim Chim Cher-ee.”
