A jolly good time
Nov. 6-11 (OKC), 13-18 (Tulsa)
Just as she descended from a cloud above London under a black umbrella, Mary Poppins is about to make a similar entrance at the Oklahoma City Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker Ave. Celebrity Attractions steers the Broadway musical adaptation of Disney’s 1964 film Mary Poppins to Oklahoma complete with English countryside, high-stepping chimney sweeps and two rambunctious children hopelessly at odds with their father – a true Edwardian man and banker named George Banks. Enter the nanny with a magic touch and housework is a breeze, teatime is a hoot and cleaning chimneys is a fantastic job. Critics have given high marks for this live stage vision based on P.L. Travers children’s books, and that makes those of us who know the movie by heart excited about it, too. Mary Poppins runs for eight shows in Oklahoma City beginning at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6. Tickets are $20-$45 at www.myticketoffice.com. The musical moves to the Tulsa Performing Arts Center, Third Street and Cincinnati Avenue, the following week for eight more shows from Nov. 13-18. Those tickets are also on sale now at www.myticketoffice.com.
