About the Show
The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces the audience to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family​ ​who live in a big house in London on Cherry Lane. The Banks children have sent many a nanny packing​ ​before a mysterious young woman named Mary Poppins appears at their doorstep and the family​ ​finds that she’s the answer to their prayer, but in a most peculiar way. This family musical is produced​ ​by and with Sunset High School Students with parent advisors, and features a student-built set, including a professionally installed rigging system that will have Mary Poppins actually flying. This ‘once in a decade’ production is the most expensive Sunset High School musical production to date, and a fundraising campaign is underway to “Help Mary Fly” at https://www.gofundme.com/MaryPoppinsPDX .
