It’s going to be supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
THERE'S a change in the wind. A nanny lands effortlessly thanks to her trusty umbrella and the adventures begin.
Coffs Harbour Musical Comedy Company is bringing the Disney classic, Mary Poppins to the Jetty Theatre Memorial in November and the hunt is on for Mary, Bert the chimney sweep, Mr and Mrs Banks, the Banks children, Admiral Boom and all the other lovable characters.
Donna Fairall will be sitting in the director's chair for this production and is looking forward to getting to work.
"Mary Poppins was definitely a favourite movie from my childhood; a magical, flying nanny who takes no nonsense and of course that crazy song Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious." Donna said.
"I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to direct Mary this year for CHMCC. True we will have some challenges making Mary 'fly' but we love a challenge."
A cast of about 30 is needed for this show, plus a double casting of only two children's roles. The children are on stage more than Mary so the search is on for children who can go the distance.
There will be some serious choreography for six featured dancers and some fun movement and dancing for everyone else.
"Audition details and performance dates are all available on the CHMCC website and so are some audition pages for the children so they can prepare at home and not have any trouble with reading new material on the day. I am so excited about this production and looking forward to working with some talented and amazing people."
Auditions: Adults June 18. Children June 25
Venue: Bishop Druitt College, 9.30 registration, 10am start.(Note a dance-only audition June 19 at 10am same venue.)
