The Olivier award-winning production of Mary Poppins will resume performances at the Prince Edward Theatre from 7 August 2021. After over a year of shutdown, the company led by the critically acclaimed stars of the show Zizi Strallen as ‘Mary Poppins’ and Charlie Stemp as ‘Bert’ will begin rehearsals shortly in advance of their return. Tickets are now on sale.
Thomas Schumacher, President and Producer Disney Theatrical Productions, said: “Theatre is a foundational human need that has roared back following every interruption for thousands of years. My friend Cameron Mackintosh and I believe that has never been truer than now. And that there is no better re-entry to theatre than Mary Poppins, a tale about the healing power of enchantment and a family made whole. What better time than now to spend an evening at 17 Cherry Tree Lane?”
The magical story of the world’s favourite Nanny arriving on Cherry Tree Lane has been triumphantly and spectacularly brought to the stage with dazzling choreography, incredible effects and unforgettable songs. The stage version of Mary Poppins, brilliantly adapted from the wonderful stories by PL Travers and the original beloved Walt Disney film, continues to be a smash hit around the world since its opening in London 16 years ago.
Mary Poppins was the winner of Best Musical Revival at the 2020 Whatsonstage Awards and Best Set Design and Best Theatre Choreographer awards at the 2020 Olivier Awards.
Based on the stories of P.L. Travers and the original Walt Disney film, the cast is led by Zizi Strallen in the title role and Charlie Stemp as Bert. Full casting will be announced soon.
All plans for the re-opening of Mary Poppins are in accordance with the Government’s latest directives and therefore subject to change.
