On November 24 and 25, 2017 a premiere of the family musical «Mary Poppins is with us» will take place at the Big Stage of the Music Hall Theatre.
Mary Poppins is the most famous fairy-tale nanny in the world! This strict enchantress is one of the most popular characters of the English literature of XX century. In our country Mary Poppins as a character won nationwide love thanks to the film “Mary Poppins, good-bye!”, featuring amazing songs by M. Dunaevsky.
If your kids still aren’t familiar with songs about “33 Cows and a Glass of Fresh Milk” and “Lady Perfect”, then they will be able to hear them live in the new musical of the Music Hall Theatre.
A respectable English family of the Banks with two children needs a new governess. The previous governesses had left, because it was very difficult to work with spoilt Jane and Michael Banks. And suddenly a young resolute woman appears on the doorstep, with a carpetbag and an umbrella in her hands. It is she who is going to become the keeper of the Banks children’s secrets. The plot about an enchantress who can sew buttons with her look, slide up the banisters, and turn a cold medicine into a real treat, will shine anew at the Music Hall Theatre.
This play is not just entertainment, but also a philosophic work about children’s world and mind. Child viewers will get a real pleasure from watching it. Because the play, like an old friend, will tell the young generation about innermost secrets hidden in the soul of a child. Adult viewers will recall their early years and involuntarily envy the children who’ve got a governess who can feel their souls so deeply. The musical is meant to teach us that as we become adults we shouldn’t forget about our youthful urges and desires, that we should remain somewhat a child in our hearts, then in the adult life a real miracle can happen!
