Mary Poppins RECAP!

Wow, what an intense week! It was so much fun though, and the show came together so well. I am so proud of my community, this company, and every single cast and crew member who put all this heart and drive into the show. It really made it worthwhile, and we had such incredible, engaged audiences every night-a truly amazing show all around.

Of course, I promised pictures! I juggled a few roles within the play: I started out as a statue of Queen Victoria, then I turned into a regular person, then I turned into a chimney sweep, and then back into Queen Victoria for the finale!

First up, the statue makeup. That stuff gets everywhere, but it's super effective!


Then my regular person costume-I have a pink plaid skirt as well, but note the fish brooch (my favorite part!!).


And then as a chimney sweep! The makeup artist took advantage of the fact that she was just going to paint me grey again, and I usually ended up much dirtier than this.


And of course, rehearsal shots! Here's us rehearsing Step in Time:


And into the kitchen for Spoonful of Sugar:


Seeing Mr. Banks at the bank:


Mary Poppins flying in to save the day:


And, our big surprise for the show, we got Bert to fly as well!


I had so much fun, and it really was an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime experience. I'm a tiny bit happy to have a regular bedtime again, but there are going to be a lot of parts of this show that I'm really going to miss.

  1. Oh that looks like so much fun! I used to love our high school drama productions. Do you think you'll stick with it, audition for parts in future plays?

    I LOVE that fishy brooch!

  4. That looks like so much fun, and that fish brooch is amazing! Hope you get to relax and enjoy a bit of free time - big projects like that are wonderfully exhausting, but exhausting nonetheless!

    1. Thanks! The sleep thing is so weird-I've gotten close to 10 hours every night since the play, and I'm still exhausted! Hopefully I get all caught up soon :)
