About Mary Poppins

Step in time and imagine you’re on a jolly holiday with Mary Poppins in the West End. Get your umbrellas at the ready and fly to Cherry Tree Lane.

The Mary Poppins musical keeps the same heartwarming whimsical feel of the classic film with a few extra musical flourishes. Hear the Sherman Brothers’ Academy Award-winning song “Chim-Chim Cher-ee” and then get your head around the tricksy “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” routine. Mary Poppins is the ultimate feel-good family musical.

Mary Poppins repeats history too, as it returns to the Prince Edward Theatre following its original 2000s run. You can never have too much of a good thing though, and as Mary Poppins would say, it’s a practically perfect show! London Theatre raved about the “spit-spot production that returned at exactly the moment it is most needed.”

The musical follows a magical nanny as she looks after Jane and Michael Banks on Cherry Tree Lane. With the help of jack-of-all-trades Bert, the foursome go on a whole host of unbelievable adventures, stepping into paintings, flying kites, and feeding the birds. Sadly, Mary Poppins can’t stay forever, but she instils lifelong lessons into the children.

Enjoy a West End musical in the most delightful way.

Entertaining, Quirky, Great staging

See it if you're a fan of the Sherman Brothers songs and the basic plot of the film it's based on. Great sets and amazing choreographies.

Don’t see it if you expect an accurate adaptation of the film. The musical is supposed to be closer to the books, although it uses the Disney songs

More information about Mary Poppins

Given the success of its film reboot, Mary Poppins Returns, starring Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda, it’s safe to say that we're in the Mary Poppins renaissance period. There’s nothing quite like seeing Mary Poppins on stage though — pack your bags and join Mary on her unbelievable trips.

Mary Poppins features dazzling choreography by two titans of British dance, Stephen Mear and Matthew Bourne. Add Paul Kieve and Jim Steinmeyer’s illusions and Bob Crowley’s spit-spot scenic and costume design, and you’ll feel as if you’re in Edwardian London.

Whether you’re a fan of the books or the films or all of the above, the Mary Poppins musical contributes original adventures in addition to the previous stories. It’s a must-see for any Disney fans, children, families, and those who want to escape the real world for a few hours of musical bliss. Go fly a kite and end up at the Prince Edward Theatre, and book Mary Poppins tickets on TodayTix today.

What to Watch For:

  • P.L. Travers, the author of the original Mary Poppins book series notoriously hated the now beloved 1964 film adaptation starring Julie Andrews. For this reason, she only agreed to sign over the rights to the musical’s producers as long as no one associated with the film worked on the musical.
  • To adapt the updated storyline in the Mary Poppins musical in London, several beloved songs have been rearranged. Die-hard fans of the original film will notice their favourite songs such as “Spoonful of Sugar” or "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" are shifted to fit the revamped plot for the stage version.
  • During the original run of Mary Poppins in London, the producers sparked a bit of controversy when they banned children under three years of age from attending due to mildly frightening content. Eventually, the show was officially tagged as appropriate for children seven years old and up.
