The West Delaware Music department is eager to present the classic musical “Mary Poppins” in the Hanson Auditorium on Thursday, Nov. 1, at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, Nov. 3, at 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, Nov. 4, at 2:00 p.m.

There are some fantastic dance numbers that I’m sure you will enjoy! Hope to see you there!”

— Denise Cherry - Mary Poppins

This musical, based on the book series (written by P. L. Travers) and the 1964 movie, tells the tale of two young rambunctious children who have been scaring off “Good for Nothing” nannies, much to the dismay of their parents, who want nothing but “Precision and Order.” After making their claim for “The Perfect Nanny,” Mary Poppins appears at “Cherry Tree Lane” claiming to be “Practically Perfect” for the position. Through their adventures, they find that “Anything Can Happen” with Mary, turning their mundane lives into a “Jolly Holiday.”

The Music Department promises that the only thing sweeter than this show is a “Spoonful of Sugar” and audiences will be singing along to this classic faster than you can say  “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.”

Tickets are available by calling the Box Office at (563) 927-3515 and selecting 7 or visiting www.hansonauditorium.com and selecting Box Office. Adult tickets are $10 and student, $5.
