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 members how to value each other again,
LNT's Theater FOR Kids BY Kids production will run approximately 80 minutes without an intermission.
LNT is excited to welcome old friends back and new to join us for Mary Poppins.
Taryn Noelle (Hairspray, Pippin, etc) has been a regular member of LNT and its education programs for the past 5 years, and we're delighted to have her with us again to choreograph and assistant direct Mary Poppins.
And we are thrilled to welcome back musical director Tim Guilles. Tim worked with LNT in the early 2000's on many projects, but most notably as MD/Conductor for the Sondheim musicals A Little Night Music and Sweeney Todd. With his background in a capella & barbershop singing, Tim will be a great guide to tight harmony singing for Mary Poppins!
And we welcome Sarah Jane Schostack to the LNT family for the first time. SJ is a director/teaching artist based in NYC. Her most recent credits include Lincoln Center, Hangar Theatre, and New York Theater Workshop.
