Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's acclaimed stage musical of Mary Poppins has delighted audiences around the world since its world premiere in 2004, and is set to return to the West End at the Prince Edward Theatre in 2019.
Featuring music and lyrics by the Sherman Brothers, with additional music and lyrics by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, it is based on the much loved children's books by P. L. Travers and the 1964 Disney film of the same name. Julian Fellowes' book blends the original stories with the much loved film to create a new and iconic stage adventure.
The musical tells the story of Mary Poppins, a nanny with magical powers who looks after Jane and Michael Banks. The musical includes the songs 'Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' and 'A Spoonful of Sugar'.
Zizi Strallen will play the title role in the production, recently playing Fran in Strictly Ballroom at the Piccadilly Theatre. She is joined by Charlie Stemp as Bert, who recently starred in Snow White at the London Palladium.
Further casting in Mary Poppins is yet to be announced.
