Mary Poppins drops (or gracefully glides) from the skies to take charge of the Banks household as a mystical yet fearsome nanny. Her story first came to West End at the Prince Edward Theatre in December 2004 and continued its successful run until January 2008. Its leading star Laura Michelle Kelly's fantastic performance won her an Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Musical in 2005.After a break of more than 10 years, everyone's beloved nanny returned to its original home at West End for a second innings in November 2019.
The lives of George, Winifred, Michael, and Jane – members of the Banks family – take a magical turn with the entry of Mary Poppins. The practically perfect nanny arrives at Number 17 on Cherry Tree Lane and takes them on a fantastical adventure unlike anything else. With the help of Bert, Mary arouses the children’s curiosity about the world and imparts valuable life lessons along the way. Similarly, she transforms George's outlook on life by placing his family at its centre. The story of Mary Poppins teaches us to always look for the silver lining even in the bleakest of circumstances.
