While the TYA Senior Company production title has been out for awhile, Drama Learning Center announced TYA Junior Company’s Fall/Winter production title on social media last week. Following successful productions of SHREK the Musical and The Addams Family, Junior Company will fly high with England’s favorite “practically perfect” nanny, Mary Poppins. Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, Mary Poppins received nominations for nine Olivier Awards and seven TONY Awards during an exciting Broadway run of 2,500 performances.
After being the first nanny that hasn’t been sent packing, Mary Poppins takes Young Jane and Michael Banks on magical and memorable adventures. She teaches the children and grown-ups alike that “Anything can happen if you let it.”
Junior Company will have the opportunity to tell this timeless story through memorable songs, enchanting dance numbers, and special effects and illusions. Auditions begin next week by appointment, and some slots remain.
Junior Company students should note that students who are accepted into Fall/Winter session of Junior Company will be unable to do a Drama Learning Center Winter production class. Directors recommend that Junior Company students participate in DLC Fall and Spring production classes in conjunction with TYA Junior Company’s Winter production and Spring skills-based class to maximize their performance opportunities and skill-building potential.
