Mary Poppins

Following its critically acclaimed Sydney season, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s MARY POPPINS is now playing at Brisbane’s Lyric Theatre, QPAC.

Seen by tens of millions of people worldwide, this magical stage adaptation of the wonderful stories by Queensland-born author PL Travers has been delighting a whole new generation of theatre-goers in Sydney. With dazzling choreography, incredible effects, and unforgettable songs, the story of the world’s favourite Nanny arriving on Cherry Tree Lane is even more magical in this new production.
