Set in England in 1910, 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 troubled Banks family how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures and even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that “Anything can happen if you let it.” It is a great adventure for all to enjoy.

Much dedication and many hours have gone into rehearsals, choreography, stage design, costumes and bringing a quality college and community production to the stage. Under the direction of NFCC’s Denise Bell, many others have contributed their leadership and talents including music direction by Jay Hicks, Choreography by Danielle Leslein and an outstanding backstage crew.
