NEWS: Mary Poppins will land in Leicester to begin new UK Tour.

Disney and Cameron Mackintosh have announced this morning that Mary Poppins will return to the UK and Ireland on a brand new tour which will open at Leicester Curve on Tuesday 13th October 2015.

Cameron Mackintosh said today “It’s hard to believe that it is already 11 years since Mary Poppins first landed on the London stage. My goodness……time flies even faster than our beloved Nanny! I’m delighted to be bringing her back to the UK and for the first time to Dublin, after spreading her magic around the world. Since we originally staged the production we have found even more magical ways to stage this timeless tale and I’m sure you will find our new Mary practically perfect in every way”.

The magical story of the world’s favourite Nanny arriving on Cherry Tree Lane has been triumphantly and spectacularly brought to the stage with dazzling choreography, incredible effects and unforgettable songs. The stage version of Mary Poppins is brilliantly adapted from the wonderful stories by PL Travers and the beloved Walt Disney film.

The production is co-created by Cameron Mackintosh and has a book by Downton Abbey’s Julian Fellowes. With a score by The Sherman Brothers with additional material from Stiles and Drewe. The UK Tour will be directed by Anthony Lyn and Choreographed by Geoffrey Garratt with musical supervision by Stephen Brooker.

Casting for the tour is yet to be announced.
