Mary Poppins Jr. at the Gateway is Supercallifragilisticexpialidocious!
See the show now through August 18th, 2018. Fridays at 11am & 2pm and Saturdays at 11am
You will be as mesmerized by the talent in the show as young Jane and Michael Banks are by the amount of stuff Mary Poppins can pull out of her bag. The show is delightful and witty and one your whole family will enjoy.
Mary Poppins says , “In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun.” The young cast of actors from The Gateway School for the Performing Arts did just that. Each actor and actress whether in the ensemble or playing one of the main roles were exceptional. There is singing and dancing in a perfectly portrayed version of the classic story we all know and love.
There were two numbers that stick out in my mind (although the whole performance was exceptional) and that was when they perform Supercallifragilisticexpialidocious and Step In Time. I know I was completely WOWed watching all the kids spell one of the hardest words out (I have a hard time saying it at times) and not only spell it out while singing but, also spell each letter out while dancing and making their bodies resemble each letter. You will not believe your eyes and you will be captivated by the talent on stage during this number and the tapping talent of the kids during Step In Time! The young talent in this show is inspiring to the kids in the audience who may want to perform, as well.
I would like to recognize, Matt Karris (who directed and choreographed this performance) and Peter Pece (music director) for their talents and wonderful direction. The time and effort spent in this production was very evident not only on the children acting in the performance but, on their parts, as well. BRAVO!
The actor and actress who played Mary Poppins and Bert are so talented. They were both in the last Gateway School for the Performing Arts production of Little Mermaid Jr., as well and were extraordinary in those roles, as well. I can not get over their talent. They have such beautiful voices and portray their characters not only verbally but non-verbally in a practically perfect way!
The Banks family actors and actresses were exceptional, as well. The actress who portrayed, Winifred Banks and the actor who portrayed, George Banks depict the emotions of these two characters exceptionally. And, let’s not forget the witty and accurate emotions that the young actress and actor who played Jane and Michael Banks gave us throughout the performance. My girls loved them. Some of our favorite scenes included the Banks family along with their maid, Mrs. Brill and butler, Robertson Ay.
All the actors and actresses did a wonderful job on stage along with those who worked behind the scenes which made for a wonderful show that will be part of our summer memories and we look forward to the next Gateway School of Performing Arts production. The are always a delight to attend.
YOU ARE ALL WONDERFUL AND TALENTED and should be so proud of yourselves!
