Mary Poppins!

Sunday, July 13  -  TWO SHOWS!

6:30 p.m., Franklin Theatre, downtown Franklin

It’s a jolly SINGALONG with Mary!  Experience the magic of Disney’s MARY POPPINS with an unforgettable interactive experience.  We’ll have supercalifragilistic goodie bags and our host will lead you through audience participation activities.  You don’t have to worry about forgetting the words – they’ll be on the screen!  Sing your heart out with Mary, Bert, and the gang to some of the best known and most beloved songs in motion picture history.  PLUS, you’re invited to come dressed as your favorite MARY POPPINS character or in a film-inspired outfit and participate in a costume parade on-stage immediately before this special sing-along event (talking parrot umbrella, anyone?).

About the movie...

Adapted from PL Travers’ 1934 novel, Mary Poppins premiered in August 1964.  “Practically perfect in every way,” it earned 13 Academy Award nominations and became Disney’s biggest box office success to date.  Julie Andrews made Mary Poppins her film debut and nabbed the Oscar, beating out Audrey Hepburn for Best Actress in 1967.  After 42 years, Mary Poppins continues to pull lasting magic from its cinematic carpet bag of tricks, while reminding new generations how a simple gift of kindness costs merely tuppence.
