Things haven’t been going well for the Banks family. The children are out of control and a new nanny is required to put things in order. When a mysterious young woman appears on their doorstep, the family finds that she’s the answer to their prayers, but in the most peculiar way. A Broadway musical spectacular for the whole family. This brand new production of the much-loved classic will burst onto our stage. Rediscover the gorgeous songs, loveable children and that magical woman. As Mary would say: It’s practically perfect! – Dennis Garnhum

A Wonderful Coming-of-Age Story She’s 12 and 3/4. And knows more than you think. Since her parents’ divorce, Claudia seeks refuge in a quiet, dusty corner of her school’s boiler room. Her collection of treasures and the kindness of the janitor help her cope with the chaos that comes with change. But when Claudia inadvertently learns of another family upheaval, it might finally be too much for this “official pre-teen” to take. Performed entirely in mask, this one-woman show maps the heartbreaking and often hilarious journey of an extraordinary girl with a lot on her mind. Box Office 1-800-267-7553
