Disney’s “Mary Poppins” has a reputation for delighting audiences young and old with its lovable characters, optimistic story and family-focused life lessons.
Thanks to a bit of magic, both classic and new tunes and a “spoonful of sugar,” the beloved story comes to life on the CenterPoint Legacy Theatre stage through March 25.
The title role is shared on alternating nights by Sarah Jane Watts and Natalie Peterson, both of whom are veterans to the CPT stage. Watts, who performed on the show’s opening night, stole the show with her witty deliveries and engaging acting. She played and sang the part of Mary Poppins with grace and dignity as she worked to mend the Banks family.
