Everyone’s favorite practically perfect nanny takes the stage in this Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious musical adventure!

One of the most popular Disney movies of all time is capturing hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect musical! Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins delighted Broadway audiences for over 2,500 performances and received nominations for nine Olivier and seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

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.”

Presented by Ka Joog
  • Drama

This gripping political drama examines the intellectual curiosity of the Somali diaspora and its interpretation of "Siyaasada Maanta," by providing an in-depth look into the lives of young Somali millennials burdened by expectation and duty. Attracted by the promise of a better life and stability, youth migrate from the homeland only to be swallowed by the waves of the sea, the metaphorical equivalent of a life encumbered by finding the balance between love of self and community.

Meanwhile, young Somalis in the diaspora return to Somalia burdened by their own memories and wounds that have been neglected or overlooked by history. What connections and commonalities do they share? How do they differ? These are "The Politics of Today."

For this show, tickets will be available at the door only.
