“Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!”  This silly word can mean only one person:  Mary Poppins.  For most people, “Mary Poppins” is the character immortalized by Julie Andrews in Disney’s endearing 1964 movie of the classic story by P. L. Travers.  However, the tale of the Banks family and their “practically perfect” nanny has been turned into an award-winning musical.  Mary Poppins the musical flies onto the stage for the first time at the Vanity Theater here in Crawfordsville this Friday, running the weekends of July 29-31 and August 5-7. The show is directed by John P. Blair and produced and choreographed by Lisa Kochert Warren.

    Mary Poppins (Jennie Fights) comes down to the Banks’ house in answer to Jane (Alivia Williams) and Michael (Hutton Haas) Banks’ advertisement for “The Perfect Nanny.” With jack-of-all-trades Bert (Brian Swick), she takes the children on marvelous adventures.  Using magic and common sense, Mary Poppins helps Mr. Banks (Colt Preston Dildine), Mrs. Banks (Lisa Kochert Warren), and the children to value each other and become the close family they were meant to be.  “I truly enjoy the journey the family goes on,” states Jennie Fights.  “They start out very unconnected and, with the help of Mary Poppins, they transform into a family that loves and cares for one another.”

Question of the Week

The fund-raising for the courthouse clock tower is almost complete. When it's done, the tower will really help Crawfordsville's downtown.
