ABOUT THE EVENT
One of the most popular Disney movies of all time is capturing hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect musical! Lighthouse Festival Theatre is thrilled to present MARY POPPINS as our 2018 Community Show.
The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren’t the only ones she has a profound effect upon. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that “Anything can happen if you let it.”

Nerves holding you back from auditioning? Read what Artistic Director Derek Ritschel has to say: “The audition is a chance for me to meet you, not so much a chance for me to see how perfectly you can sing or act. I just want to know who’s interested – we’ll deal with the singing and dancing later.”
Select singing rehearsals will begin in November. Full rehearsals will commence in January.
