Super Saturday #1

Our first MP Super Saturday is on March 2nd and involves all company members at some point throughout the day. For details, click on the Lime Cast or Strawberry Cast. Company members who are in both casts are asked to attend both events. 

Everyone must enter and exit through the west doors of the school only. All company members must check in & out at the call board. We respectfully ask everyone, adults and kids alike, to follow this routine as it follows school protocol and serves as important training for dress rehearsal/performance procedures.

This will be a closed rehearsal; only scheduled company members and scheduled volunteers will be allowed to attend. No supervision will be provided before or after rehearsal call times. No food, toys or electronics allowed. 

Adults, we need you! Please consider helping for a short time. Click here to volunteer at this event.

Mary's Life Lessons

When considering scripts, we specifically search for uplifting messages within. Mary Poppins Jr. provides many opportunities for learning and growth. Recognizing the historical social and gender unbalances inherent in the setting, we chose to reinterpret some of the artistic presentation and implement relevant discussion on how society has evolved.

Our MP cast identified fifteen positive "life lessons" in the lines and lyrics of the script. In response to this dialogue, they decided to tap their noses as reminders each time these passages are rehearsed and they have taken special care to thoughtfully present their characters intentions. In addition, these morals were highlighted to the MP company in our weekly TAG Times and all LHE students will be invited to contribute to the visual presentation of Mary’s Life Lessons throughout performances.

Lesson #1: Anything can happen if you let it.

Lesson #8: Never miss a chance to get it right.

Lesson #9: And always remember, there’s plenty of folk ready to help you should you need ‘em.
