Apex presents Mary Poppins Jr. at Lewis Auditorium
The Apex Theatre Studio will present Disney’s beloved family classic
Mary Poppins Jr. on June 24th-26th at Lewis Auditorium, located on the campus of Flagler College.
“This season is about discovering joy, spreading laughter, and celebrating the return of in-person camps,” remarked Managing Director Ian Mairs. “We are excited to move our summer season to Lewis Auditorium, which offers the students a chance to work in an impressive performance space with ample seating for a popular show like this one.”
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 production features over 40 young artists from the North Florida area. Olivia DeMaio, a rising junior in the musical theater program at Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, plays the title character. George Eastman, a sophomore in the same program, portrays the chimney sweep, Bert.
Performances are Friday, June 24th at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, June 25th at 2:00 p.m., and Sunday, June 26th at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $22.00 and can be purchased at www.apextheatrejax.com/events.
