Mary Poppins Arrives This Weekend for Friday’s Pay-What-You-Can Preview and Saturday’s Grand Opening Celebration

April 24, 2015

Mary Poppins says she “shall stay until the winds change.”  This cast of beautiful, handsome, eager and talented young people makes this delightful production one of, if not our best ever.  It is more appealing than anything we have ever done.  I am at a loss for the fear of “the wind changing,” and it […]
