Mary Poppins is the latest production from the Albatross Musical Theatre Company.
I never fail to be astounded by the amazing talent of our local performers and Mary Poppins is definitely no exception. As always the ensemble pieces are a riot of song, dance, and exuberance - particularly Step In Time and Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! (above)
I'm loathe to single out performances, as the entire cast - on-stage, back stage, and in the orchestra pit - are wonderful, but special mention must be made of Briannah Gorden (below) in the title role and Makenzie Bonney as Jane Banks - their singing is superb.
It's hysterical when Mary Poppins and Miss Andrew throw down in Brimstone and Treacle Part 2 - and where do they keep finding all these talented children for the ensemble cast?!
The vocal arrangement and execution of Feed The Birds by the Bird Woman (delightfully portrayed by Marie De La Torre) and the pit singers, is sublime.
Another triumph for Albatross - get your tickets now!
Mary Poppins opens Friday 13 July at the Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre
