I saw the play last night and was very impressed. All the main characters had demanding singing and dancing parts which they all carried off with aplomb. Bert and Mary Poppins were top knotch. Not only that, it appeared that a large number of other students participated who didn’t have talking parts…..all of them must have worked very hard, as well, to learn all the music lyrics and dance steps. I admire the director for choosing such a challenging play and giving so many people such a positive experience. I cannot imagine the number of backstage, volunteer hours that were put in on the scenery and costumes!
