Comment about last year's Classic for Kids show from one of our Facebook followers:
"My boys did this last year...hard to believe you could put together an all-kids version of A Midsummer Night's Dream in 2 weeks, but they did! Great group of kids and a great experience with director Jim Banar!"
A Midsummer Night's Dream, 2015

One of the most popular Disney movies of all time is capturing hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect musical! Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's MARY POPPINS delighted Broadway audiences for over 2,500 performances and received nominations for nine Olivier and seven TONY Awards, including Best Musical.
Newtown Arts Company's production, directed by James McCrane with musical direction by Susan den Outer, will be performed April 7 through 13 at the historic Newtown Theatre, 120 N. State Street, Newtown, PA 18977. The show opens as jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep.
Using a combination of magic and common
sense, she must teach the family how to value each other again. Mary Poppins
takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and
Michael aren't the only ones she has a profound effect upon. Even grown-ups can
learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen
if you let it."
MARY POPPINS is an enchanting mixture of irresistible story, unforgettable songs, breathtaking dance numbers, and astonishing stagecraft.
Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's MARY POPPINS is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
