Mary Poppins, the ultimate English nanny, takes up residence at the Players Club of Swarthmore beginning tonight, December 2, for a fortnight’s stay. The family musical bearing her name will run for ten performances on PCS’s main stage, offering a joyful and optimistic show that is truly apt for all ages.
Mary Poppins has delighted many generations in book, play and movie form. PCS’s version is directed by Brian Walsh, with music direction by Emily Szal and choreography by Emily Aaron Fishman and Katie Sienkiewicz.
More than 40 regional actors lend their talents to the cast, including Bridget Thompson of Havertown as Mary and Neil Kirschling of Wilmington as Bert, along with many young thespians from Swarthmore, Media and nearby.
Friday and Saturday showtimes are at 8 p.m.; Sunday matinees at 2 p.m., and Thursday evening performances at 7:30 p.m. Ticketing and more information is available at pcstheater.org.
PCS is located at 611 Fairview Road in Swarthmore.
