Due to the high demand for Mary Poppins this performance class was added for the weeks of July 15th- August 2nd! Click here to the see information on the July 8th-26th Mary Poppins class.
Take center stage with this skill-intensive performance class! Students will refine acting skills through the process of auditioning, rehearsing, and performing in a full-length play. Professional actors, directors, and choreographers straight off Childsplay's stages will direct Mary Poppins. The first two weeks of rehearsals are on our main campus and the last week students rehearse at the Tempe Center for the Arts with final performances at 11 am and 2 pm on Friday, August 2nd.
About the Play:
The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family members how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren't the only ones upon whom she has a profound effect. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen if you let it."
