Young Peoples Theatres production of Mary Poppins is a winner, with a top-notch cast, an abundance of memorable songs and a kid-friendly running time of only 90 minutes. As Mary Poppins, Vanessa Sears lends warmth and whimsy to the severely proper magical nanny. The show is great for first-time theatre-goers since director Thom Allison uses old-fashioned theatrical effects rather than projections and electronics to create the shows magic. Its an exuberant, warm-hearted production sure to cheer adults and children alike.
