The cast is due to step in time and into the rehearsal room from September.
The magical story of the world’s favourite Nanny has been brought to the stage with dazzling choreography, incredible effects and unforgettable songs. The show features both the original music and lyrics by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman (including Jolly Holiday, Step in Time, Feed the Birds and Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious), and new songs by the Olivier award-winning George Stiles and Anthony Drewe.
The stage version of Mary Poppins is adapted from the wonderful stories by PL Travers and the beloved Walt Disney film. The show has already enjoyed a successful West End run in 2004, performing over 1,250 shows and winning two Olivier Awards.
A subsequent new production of the show, adapted from the original, enjoyed record-breaking runs across the globe, including Australia, North America, UK and Ireland, Holland and Germany, where it’s just entered the second year of performances. Several further new productions are opening across Europe over the next three years, and this will be the first time the new production will be seen in London.
Mary Poppins returns to its original West End home at the Prince Edward Theatre from 23 October 2019, tickets are on sale now.
