Mercyhurst Prep Performs Mary Poppins by Tracy Geibel

Thursday, April 6

“It’s supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!”

And “super” is just the feedback that Mercyhurst Preparatory School’s (MPS) Performing Arts Department will want to hear following its production of Mary Poppins.

Students in the program will perform the beloved musical four times at the MPS Performing Arts Center from Thursday, April 6 to Sunday, April 9, which leaves few excuses to miss the show.

Mary Poppins is a great choice to inaugurate some of the new technology and features in our new PAC,” said Arthur Martone, MPS performing arts chairman and director of the show.

More than 68 cast members and 35 orchestra members have been preparing since January. Students Maia Magerle (Mary Poppins) and Gabe Gallagher (Burt) will actually fly across the stage during the performance.

The musical will feature songs like “A Spoonful of Sugar,” “Chim Chim Cher-Ee,” “Jolly Holiday,” and “Let’s Go Fly a Kite.” Just as when you watch the movie, you’ll likely find yourself singing or humming these catchy tunes long after the show is over. Fortunately, since there are multiple showings, you can come back to get your fix.

Though information is available online, the tickets for this production will be sold at the door.  – Tracy Geibel
