■ Mary Poppins!
Our 17th Annual Ballet!
Full-length with all original choreography!
Our Company dancers and academy students are honored to bring the story of Mary Poppins to the stage this coming June 13-14, 2015. The endearing English nanny with practical answers and a positive outlook on everything imaginable first appeared in 1926 in a series of short stories already underway by P.L. Travers. The introduction of this character to the storyline resulted in a surge of interest in the series, and by 1934, Miss Travers, who had the character fully developed in her mind, expanded her short stories into full-length novels that revolved entirely around her fictional English Nanny. In 1964, Disney became interested in the character and produced a movie with Julie Andrews cast in the title role. The unforgettable performance by Andrews made Mary Poppins a household name across America and around the world. Years later now, the English Nanny who measures up to be practically perfect in every way still delights audiences of all ages… with a musical miniseries released in the 1980’s, a Broadway play in 2004, an appearance at the spectacular opening ceremonies of the 2012 Olympics in London (where dozens of Mary Poppins swept in on umbrellas to save the children from Voldemort of the Harry Potter series), and most recently a spin-off movie called “Saving Mr. Banks,” Disney’s production in 2013 staring Tom Hanks that reveals the back story of Mary Poppins. Nearly 90 years after she was first introduced, this fictional character remains timeless as audiences of all ages are still drawn into the fantasy world of Mary Poppins.
See this endearing tale come to life on stage when all-original choreography from the masterminds of head Mistress Jessie Krick and her talented staff come together with the skill and enthusiasm of 100 In Sync Dancers. It’s a positively perfect ballet for the whole family!
