Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, join the chimney sweep Bert and young Jane and Michael Banks on magical and memorable adventures with Mary Poppins. Using a combination of magic and common sense, Mary Poppins teaches the family to value each other. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson from the nanny who advises that “anything can happen if you let it.”

The musical is an ambitious production that features a cast of 39 students supported by a crew of 20 students and many adults along with an orchestra of 25 student musicians. With special wire harness rigging, the characters of Mary Poppins and Bert will actually fly on stage.

General seating tickets are $8 for adults, $5 for students under 18 years of age and senior citizens over age 60. Tickets are now available at Office C in the high school and through the HFAC website at www.hamiltonfineartscenter.com. They also may be purchased 30 minutes prior to the show at the HFAC box office where only cash and checks can be accepted.

The Hamilton Fine Arts Center is located at W220 N6151 Town Line Rd., Sussex.
