Mary Poppins is a classic musical that tells the story of George and Winifred who live at Number 17, Cherry Tree Lane with their misbehaved children, whose latest nanny has just quit in a fit. Mary Poppins arrives as the “practically perfect” nanny, who teaches with magic and joyfully bonds with the children as none other has before her. When Mary suddenly leaves the position, and Winifred hires George’s childhood nanny to take on the job, sending George and the children fleeing from the house, Mary becomes more valuable than ever. With patience, kindness, and a little bit of magic, Mary and her friend Bert help the family set things right — maybe more right than they’d ever been before.
