San Francisco Playhouse celebrates the magic of the holiday season with the hit Broadway musical Mary Poppins. Susi Damilano will direct the Playhouse production, with music direction by Katie Coleman and choreography by Kimberly Richards.
The entitled children of the stern Mr. Banks have made short work of a string of nannies. But when the tattered sorceress Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep, she must use a combination of magic and common sense to engage the children to drop their silver spoons and lead their distracted dad to kite-flying redemption. A new take on a classic tale, this musical will truly make you believe that anything can happen if you let it - and want to sing “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from the chimney tops!
“It’s a cherished memory of mine—as a 5 year old huddled with my cousins, captivated in front of the television watching the Disney film of Mary Poppins,” recalls director Susi Damilano. “Mary Poppins was remarkable with her open invitation to believe that anything is possible while nurturing the power of imagination, inspiring both children and adults. I want to bring that experience to San Francisco audiences this holiday season."
