Lindsay’s community theater showcases local talent in the enchanting tale of “Mary Poppins,” where a magical nanny transforms the Banks family’s lives

LINDSAY – The Lindsay Community Theater is bringing the enchanting tale of “Mary Poppins” to life, featuring local talent to tell the heartwarming story of the Banks family.

The Lindsay Community Theater has officially announced its spring production of the acclaimed Broadway musical “Mary Poppins.” Show dates are April 19, 20, 26, & 27 at 7:30 p.m. and April 21 & 28 at 2 pm.

Directed by Jim Kliegl, and choreographed by Chelsea Cusack, Linda Jarrett and Haley Brummet, “Mary Poppins” brings the beloved tale to life. The story centers on the Banks family, featuring George Galloway as Father George, Alli Smith as Mother Winifred, Elizabeth Clements as Son Michael and Evy June Elizondo as Daughter Jane.

When the children’s nanny, portrayed by Stacey Johnson, unexpectedly leaves, they wish for the “perfect” replacement, leading to the arrival of the magical Mary Poppins, played by Chelsea Cusack. Mary Poppins exhibits her magical abilities and takes the kids on an enchanting journey to the park.

In the park, they encounter various characters, including a talking statue, a chimney sweep, a bird woman, and more. Later, in the nursery, Jane and Michael inadvertently damage a toy doll, Valentine, played by Edelyn Zimmer, which leads to a surprising turn of events.

Amidst a series of adventures and challenges, including family dynamics and business decisions, Mary Poppins helps the Banks family discover the importance of love and togetherness. As the story unfolds, the family finds healing, and Mary Poppins bids farewell, leaving behind a legacy of magic and hope.
