For those of you who are frequent readers of my blog, you know that several weeks ago I had the opportunity to see Marry Poppins at the Arkansas Repertory Theater! To say I was excited would have been an understatement. I was ecstatic! MP was one of my favorite childhood movies and I was finally getting to see it come to life on the stage.
Along with three friends and despite the nasty rain, we dressed up and headed out to have a fun dinner. Once our belly’s were full we made our way to the theater! Because there were so many people, we didn’t have much of a chance for pictures but I did manage to snap this one of me and my friend AC. (ignore the fact that it looks like I’m wearing a mounds of makeup. It was a byproduct of the darkness in the theater and the brightness of the flash!)
I also wanted to take a moment to brag on these local little ones who played Michael and Jane Banks. Being so young and disciplined enough to remember hundreds of lines is truly impressive! I doubt I could have ever pulled that one off.
I know not all of my readers are in Central Arkansas, but if you have the chance to see this show on a stage in your area you should definitely check it out. It was one of, if not the best, show I’ve ever seen in a theatrical setting!
What about you? Have you ever seen your favorite childhood movie come to life on the stage? Tell me about it in the comments!
