The Dover Area High School Presents:
The high school will present Mary Poppins on March 4, 5 and 6. Audiences can attend Friday or Saturday nights at 7 pm and Saturday and Sunday afternoons at 2 pm. All seats are reserved. Tickets can be purchased by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally tickets will be sold in the auditorium lobby on Saturday, Feb. 20 from 10 am to noon and in the cafeteria lobby from 9 am to noon on Saturday Feb. 27. Tickets will also be available at the door.
Mary Poppins is the practically perfect nanny who helps us learn to take our medicine with a spoonful of sugar, find the silver lining in every situation, and realize that sometimes we should just use the winds of change to go fly a kite. Mary brings order to the Banks household, takes Jane and Michael out on magical adventures, and dispenses sage advice, such as, "anything can happen if you let it.".
Drawing inspiration from the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's Mary Poppins first delighted Broadway audiences and now will delight our community as well. Mary Poppins is a show which is chock-full of familiar tunes. Audiences will recognize songs from the Disney film such as "Chim Chim Cher-ee," "A Spoonful of Sugar," "Feed the Birds," "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious," "Let's Go Fly a Kite," and "Step in Time."
As an extra event, the cast will host a Breakfast With the Characters on Saturday, Feb. 27 from 9 to 11 am in the high school cafeteria. To buy tickets for the breakfast contact KLDelauter@gmail.com., or buy them the morning of the breakfast.
