After an award-winning 2014 showing, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins will soon become the second production in Aurora Theatre history to be remounted. The magical production will grace the iconic stage from Aug. 18 – Sept. 11.
Audiences will be dazzled as Mary and her chimney sweep sidekick Bert magically teach the Banks family the immeasurable benefits of love, joy and mutual respect.
With all of the iconic moments and songs that captured audiences’ imaginations eight years ago, as well as new, magical surprises, the family-friendly musical will kick-off Aurora Theatre’s 27th season with heart and pure Broadway joy.
“When we opened the LAC, I said we were going to fly Mary Poppins over the audience if it kills me. Well, I’m still here,” said Co-Founder and Producing Artistic Director Ann-Carol Pence. “It was an easy choice to decide to produce this show again. It was an audience favorite and one of mine too. My intent is to lean into joy this season, and this musical does just that. This production will be full of magic and surprise!”
The “practically perfect” Galen Crawley will reprise the title role, a performance that earned her the 2014 Suzi Bass Award for Outstanding Lead Female Actor in a Musical. The amazing sets, beautiful costumes and state-of-the-art effects that will allow Mary Poppins to soar through the sky are possible because of the talented professionals who create the magic behind the scenes.
Thursday through Saturday, the show will begin at 8 p.m. There’s also a matinee on Saturdays & Sundays at 2:30 p.m. The matinee on Sept. 10 will be sensory-friendly. And there’s an additional matinee performance taking place Wednesday, Aug 24. at 10 a.m. At this time, Aurora Theatre will allow full capacity seating and all patrons are required to wear a mask. The specific protocols for each performance are subject to change.
