The multi-award-winning Broadway musical hit Mary Poppins is celebrating its premiere in Switzerland with performances in Zurich in February and March 2017.
From February 1 to March 19, the multi-award winning Broadway musical hit Mary Poppins will premiere in Switzerland at Zurich’s Theater 11 – promising entertaining escapism at its best with the story of the world’s favourite nanny arriving on Cherry Tree Lane.
The musical, which has won Olivier and Tony Awards and been seen by over 12 million people, adapts PL Travers’ heart-warming stories and the 1964 Walt Disney film to tell the tale of the Banks family. Children Jane and Michael are out of control and in need of a new nanny. Their parents want someone strict for the job but the children have different ideas. When mysterious young Mary Poppins appears on their doorstep, she seems to be the most peculiar answer to their prayers. What follows are fantastical, memorable adventures that have a positive effect on the grown-ups too. After all, in the words of Mary Poppins, “anything can happen if you let it.”
Zurich Oerlikon’s Theater 11 will be hosting the English-speaking version of the musical, including its irresistible score – remember songs like Jolly Holiday, Step in Time, Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious and Feed the Birds? There will also be new songs, music and lyrics by Olivier award-winning George Stiles and Anthony Drewe.
The performance lasts just under three hours, including an interval, and tickets cost between CHF 58 and CHF 148. They're selling fast, so don't delay.
