This spring, our youngest Broadway performers (Broadway I and II) experience their main performance in The Black Box Theater at the Walnut Hill School for the Arts in Natick. This professional venue is an immense benefit for children and their families and friends as everyone shares a more intimate setting, where actors can be seen from all angles up close, and cast mates can more confidently project their young voices and maneuver a smaller stage with confidence. As a bonus, all actors delight in joining the Broadway III and IV performers on the big stage on the Walnut Hill School for the Arts’ Main Stage, as part of the ensemble and/or large scenes during one of Broadway III and IV’s large stage performances on the weekend. These children will truly get a taste of what the next level performance has in store for them.

Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family members how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren't the only ones upon whom she has a profound effect. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen if you let it."
