Marry Poppins was one of my all time favorite movies as a child. When I asked the boys if they had ever seen it, I was so sad when they said no! Where have I been all these years that they have never seen it! Because of this, I am VERY excited that MARY POPPINS is bringing its own brand of Broadway magic to theaters across the country, which has the Daily News calling it a “Roof-Raising, Toe-Tapping, High-Flying Extravaganza!” This spectacular hit has astonished over seven million people worldwide with its pure Broadway magic. With four productions currently running on three continents, Mary Poppins is one of the biggest stage musical successes in recent years to come out of London and New York.
The consummate Disney production features the irresistible story and unforgettable songs from one of the most popular Disney films of all time, plus brand-new breathtaking dance numbers and astonishing stage-craft to make it everything you could ever want in a hit Broadway show. So get swept up in the fun of this high-flying musical the New York Post gives 4 out of 4 stars and calls “a certifiable super hit!” I love this storyline because it teaches so many things at once for adults and children alike!

I am so excited to tell you that Stranahan Theater will be showing STOMP! STOMP is an overwhelming success marked by rave reviews, numerous awards and sell-out engagements, is the winner of an Olivier Award for Best Choreography (London’s Tony Award), a New York Obie Award, a Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatre Experience and a Special Citation from Best Plays. The young performers “make a rhythm out of anything we can get our hands on that makes a sound,” says co-creator/director Luke Cresswell.
Stiff-bristle brooms become a sweeping orchestra; Zippo lighters flip open and closed to create a fiery fugue; wooden poles thump and clack in a rhythmic explosion. STOMP uses everything but conventional percussion instruments – trashcans, tea chests, plastic bags, plungers, boots, and hubcaps – to fill the stage with compelling and infectious rhythms. I have seen many advertisements for this show and it is on my list of top 10 shows to see! The talent here is truly amazing. The return of the percussive hit also brings some new surprises so if you have seen it in the past, this will be a different show. They have some sections of the show now updated and restructured and the addition of two new full-scale routines, utilizing props like tractor tire inner tubes and paint cans.
The thing I love most about this is that it is a nonstop 90 minute show that is great for families, kids, adults, students, youth groups, musicians etc.
Performance Times are Tuesday, April 26th at 8 pm and Wednesday April 27th at 8pm
