Expect the winds to change this month as Studio East in Kirkland brings everyone’s favorite practically perfect nanny to the stage in this Supercalifragi-listicexpialidocious musical adventure.

“Mary Poppins” will run from July 29 to Aug. 6 at the Kirkland Performance Center. Adult tickets are $20 and tickets for youths 21 years and younger or seniors 65 years and older are $16. Tickets are sold through the KPC box office and seating is reserved.

“Anything can happen if you let it” is the message Mary Poppins weaves throughout this magical musical. This is also the theme for the Studio as everyone has worked hard to put it all together. The cast, orchestra, artistic team, costume designers, prop designers Deane Middleton and Lynn Chesnut and Erik Eaglson and his stage design crew came together to make this production possible.

“With a little imagination, a lot of hard work and a great attitude, Mary Poppins has turned into a delightful story that I am very proud to put on the stage for all of you to see,” said Show Director Lani Brockman.

The production is even able to fly cast members around the stage with help from four large donations.

The show is recommended for ages 4+ and has a running time of approximately 2 hours with intermission.

All performances are at the Kirkland Performance Center located at 350 Kirkland Ave. in Kirkland. Performances run July 29 – August 6, with the following show times:
