Applause Theatre Service Invites you and your Families to go Fly a Kite with Mary Poppins this Winter and Save Big!

Disney and Applause Theatre Service are offering some really big savings this Winter! One that you should try and catch is the wonderfully staged, spectacular "Mary Poppins". Broadway has great savings these next few months and now's the best chance to catch all of these top shows at a great price! When I first saw "Mary Poppins"(I've seen it 3 times!), we expected to see the movie on stage, but the plays storyline is different. We weren't disappointed at all as that made it a new and unexpected experience. (The songs from the movie are all there, plus a few new ones.)
The staging is amazing. Most of the action centers around the Banks house on 17 Cherry Tree Lane. This three story edifice fills the stage. When it retracts, the attic (where the Banks children's bedroom is located) descends to stage level.
The actors portraying the Banks family and their staff are outstanding. There's always the fear that the "precocious" level will be a bit too high when it comes to child actors, but "Michael and Jane" were wonderful.
It's hard to say which one number was a show-stopper. "Jolly Holiday", "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" and "Spoonful of Sugar" come to mind, but if I had to pick, "Step in Time" is the one that stood out from the rest. Tap-dancing chimney sweeps fill the stage in this rousing number. The standout is Bert who (thanks to Disney magic) walks up a wall, dances across the ceiling, and walks down the other side. WOW!!
On the other end of the spectrum, the beautiful "Feed the Birds" is the same quiet, heart tugging number as in the screen version of Mary Poppins. (Bring the Kleenex.)
There's kite flying and "nanny" flying as well. Suffice it to say, the finale will leave you wide eyed in amazement, but I don't want to spoil it for those of you who plan on going. (I probably said too much already.)
The play ended with a well deserved standing ovation. I couldn't believe it when I looked at my watch and almost 3 hours had gone by! If you're thinking of going, get those tickets now as this Winter Insider Deal is definitely going to help the show sell a lot of tickets very quickly and you don't want to miss out. So call an Applause Sales Expert now at 800-451-9930 and take advantage of this great opportunity!
