Mary Poppins

Lyric Theatre, QPAC

Following its critically acclaimed Sydney season, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s MARY POPPINS is set to soar into Brisbane’s Lyric Theatre, QPAC from October 22, 2022.

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.

The season will be a theatrical homecoming for Stefanie Jones as Mary Poppins and Jack Chambers as Bert, who both hail from Brisbane and first performed together as children in The Sound of Music in their home city.

“Growing up in Brisbane, I dreamt of playing a role like Mary Poppins,” shared Jones. “It will be so special to return to the city where I first got my start in musical theatre”. 

The practically perfect all-Australian cast features Tom Wren as George Banks, Lucy Maunder as Winifred Banks, Hannah Waterman as Mrs Brill, Gareth Isaac as Robertson Ay, Robert Grubb as Chairman and Admiral Boom, Chelsea Plumley as Miss Andrew, Cherine Peck as Mrs Corry, Lisa Sontag as Miss Lark, Kade Hughes as Neleus, Stephen Anderson as Park Keeper, and Andrew Broadbent as Policeman. Casting for Brisbane’s Birdwoman will be announced in August.
