This delightful musical, produced by Cameron Mackintosh and Disney, was last seen in Australia in 2010, thrilling audiences as the much-loved nanny flew over the audience on her umbrella. Now, the show is back with Stefanie Jones (who played Rhonda in the tour of Muriel’s Wedding the Musical) as Mary Poppins. And we reckon she’ll be practically perfect. The rest of the supercalifragilistic cast includes Jack Chambers as Bert and Nancye Hayes as the Bird Woman.
