Mary Poppins Comes to Derby Dinner

Mary Poppins

The magical nanny Mary Poppins comes into the lives of the Banks family at Derby Dinner Playhouse starting tonight.

Mary Poppins will take place every night, except Mondays, from July 2 to August 16. Evening shows will begin at 7:45 p.m. with buffet starting at 6 p.m. Matinee shows will begin at 1:30 (Sundays) or 1 p.m. (Wednesdays) with buffet starting at 11:45 a.m. All performances will take place at Derby Dinner Playhouse, located at 525 Marriott Drive in Clarksville, IN.

Mary Poppins is a musical based on the P.L. Travers books as well as the Disney movie. Winds have blown the beloved nanny to 17 Cherry Tree Lane, where she becomes the nanny to the Banks children. During her time as their nanny, magic, adventure, and chimney sweeps lead the family to a new understanding of life.

Richard M. and Richard R. Sherman created the original lyrics and music for Mary Poppins, with George Stiles and Anthony Drew contributing music and lyrics, and Julien Fellowes writing non-musical parts of the show. 

More information on the show can be found at the Derby Dinner Playhouse website.
