After the first three performances of the Playhouse 395 stage production of Mary
Poppins, the reaction to the show was unanimous, “Practically perfect in every way!”
Everyone who attended said they thoroughly enjoyed themselves, leaving the theater
with smiles on their faces and songs in their hearts.
“Those kids were just amazing, how old are they?” gushed one lady about real-life sister and brother Ashley and Caleb Fitt who play leads Jane and Michael Banks. (Ashley is 10 and Caleb just 8.) “Bedazzling, and the costumes were just beautiful!” exclaimed a long-time Playhouse patron after the Sunday matinee performance.
“Wow, I loved it! I’m astounded at the local talent we have here. And to think they are all volunteers,” marveled another.
Young Jane and Michael Banks have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins
arrives on their doorstep, and their father, George, is having difficulty at the bank where he works. Using a combination of magic and common sense, Mary teaches the Banks family members how to value each other again.
