Cross Community Players Presents Mary Poppins

A magical show for the whole family

Cross Community Players Presents Mary Poppins


Opening night July 19th for a Two Weekend Run


Who: Founded in 1980, Cross Community Players was founded to provide show tickets and collect food/supplies at every event for families in need in the Northwest Twin Cities Area for the social services organization CROSS. Cross Community Players produces two large scale productions each year and participates in several community activities such as parades, caroling at Christmas time and providing entertainment for special events.


What: Mary Poppins – Mary Poppins is widely considered to be Walt Disney's "crowning achievement". It was the only film of Disney's to garner a Best Picture nomination at the Oscars in his lifetime. Mary Poppins visits a dysfunctional family in London and employs her unique brand of lifestyle to improve the family's dynamic. This production is a mixture of the books and movie. All the musical numbers are based on the movie/Broadway production.


Why: Director Jeff Anderson says “We wanted the audience to see themselves in the show. We created a production that is truly a collaboration between the music and the choreography. We are lucky enough to have Ann Marie Omeish, the owner of Escalate Dance, leading up our dance numbers. She has skillfully created and brings out the best performances from the kids in the cast to the more seasoned players. Everyone knows that Mary Poppins has her own special magic. I developed and direct this production staying true to the story, but tell it from the point of view of the Banks kids, Michael and Jane.”
