Mary Poppins – The Broadway Musical in Branson was supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! 🙌❤️ Such talent in our little town! ❤️ Great job Alex Harris and Thomas Reasoner (and entire cast)! These Cochrans had a great day on the town. – Michelle Cochran

Mary Poppins is directed by Jacob Deck with Musical Director Michelle Baker and features a cast of 39 talented performers including one very cute infant and a lovable dog!

One of the most popular Disney movies of all time is capturing hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect musical! Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins delighted Broadway audiences for over 2,500 performances and received nominations for nine Olivier and seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

We went to see Mary Poppins tonight at the theater downtown. It was absolutely incredible. I would highly recommend going to see it the tickets are only $20 and worth every penny. – Karen Cook

Sheryl and I were blown away with the talented cast performing Mary Poppins last evening. Broadway in Branson! I found myself thinking that I preferred Leah Johnson’s performance of Mary Poppins to the Julie Andrews version…wow! Hats off to Jim Barber and his growing team at BRAC for another amazing show with local talent! Nice to see them playing to a packed house. – Kenn Tilus

The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing beforeMary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family members how to value each other again.

Saw this today and I was blown away on how great it was!!! Bravo to the performers and crew! – John Huntley

Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren’t the only ones upon whom she has a profound effect. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that “Anything can happen if you let it.”

We went last night and it was amazing. Great job. – Roy Tramel
