Event:
The Australian Classical Youth Ballet & The Adelaide Festival Centre present 'Mary Poppins Ballet' playing at The Adelaide Festival Theatre on May 14th at 1:00pm and 3:00pm for one day only. The show is based on the 1964 Walt Disney film starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, directed by Robert Stevenson with songs written and composed by the Sherman Brothers.

It's the story tale of The Banks family, George, Winifred and their children Jane and Michael. The children decide they want to pick their next Nanny, so they advertise what they are looking for;

'Wanted a nanny for two adorable children.'

If you want this choice position, have a cheery disposition, rosy cheeks, no warts, play games, all sorts, you must be kind, you must be witty, very sweet and fairly pretty, take us on outings, give us treats, sing songs, bring sweets, never be cross or cruel, never give us Castor oil or gruel

Love us as a son and daughter, and never smell of barley water, If you won't scold and dominate us, we will never give you cause to hate us, we won't hide your spectacles, so you can't see, put toads in your bed or pepper in your tea, Hurry nanny, many thanks, Sincerely, Jane and Michael Banks

Mary Poppins shows up in the nick of time, but when the wind changes Poppins must move on because then her job is done. This rendition of Mary Poppins is presented as a ballet and features some of Adelaide's best young ballet dancers and a beautiful music score.

Don't miss your chance to see 'Mary Poppins Ballet' come to life at The Festival Theatre this May.
