‘Mary Poppins Jr.’ by Apex Studio Theater

Apex Theater Studio will present Disney’s beloved family classic, Mary Poppins Jr. Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 24-26 at the Lewis Auditorium, 14 Granada St., on the Flagler College campus. Young Jane and Michael have had many a nanny packed before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family members to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren’t the only ones she has a profound effect on. Even adults can learn a lesson or two from the Nanny, who advises that “anything can happen if you let it.” The production features more than 40 young artists from the North Florida area.
