Friday & Saturday, Dec. 22-23—RUTLAND—Rutland Youth Theatre presents “Mary Poppins, the Broadway Musical” (with live orchestra) to celebrate the holidays, Dec. 22-23 at the Paramount Theatre in Rutland.
Produced by Saskia Hagen Groom, directed and choreographed by Tegan Waite, and musical directed by Benjamin Green, “Mary Poppins, the Broadway Musical” captures audiences with a jack-of-all trades, Bert, who

introduces 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. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren’t the only ones upon whom she has a profound effect. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that, “Anything can happen if you let it.”

“Mary Poppins, the Broadway Musical” is an enchanting mixture of irresistible story, unforgettable songs, breathtaking dance numbers and astonishing stagecraft.

Show times at the Paramount Theatre are Dec. 22, 7 p.m. and Dec. 23, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 for children and seniors, $12 for adults, and available by visiting paramountvt.org

Rutland Youth Theatre is part of the Rutland Recreation and Parks Department and is a non-for-profit organization. For more information on upcoming productions and workshops, visit rutlandrec.com/theatre.
