The witty, imaginative books, aglint with magic and many of the much-loved Sherman Brothers songs from Walt Disney's Academy Award-winning motion picture, have been re-invented and created afresh by Acamedy Award-winning writer Julian Fellowes and Olivier Award-winning songwriters George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, who have also composed several terrific new songs to add to a score that already boasts more than a spoonful of sugar.
Some of the theatre's finest creative talents have been brought together to realise Mary Poppins on the stage. Richard Eyre, Matthew Bourne and Stephen Mear will bring to life the most famous timeless and practically perfect nanny in an extraordinary and visually magical world created by Bob Crowley - a world where anything can happen if you let it!
