The Showstoppers series is a sure bet for all performers. This series uses a well-known musical’s script as the vehicle to teach the process of creating a musical theatre production from beginning to end.  Students learn the important components of staging a musical, from reading a script, to preparing for an audition, to singing music, learning choreography and memorizing lines to create a polished production.

Everyone’s favorite practically perfect nanny takes the stage in this Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious musical adventure. The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family members how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren’t the only ones upon whom she has a profound effect. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that “Anything can happen if you let it.”  The Tweens classes will play the named character roles, and the Kids classes will make up the chorus playing a variety of fun characters to help tell this magical story.
