From The Upper Arlington News, February 11, 2015:

Upper Arlington students will bring audiences a "slightly darker" version of Mary Poppins based on the children's book series by P.L. Travers. The script was written by Julian Fellowes, creator of the PBS television series Downton Abbey.

Director Eric Kauffman said the stage version is based on the books and the 1964 Disney movie, but is closer in tone to the books. It also brings back elements originally removed from the movie, such as a walking statue, the addition of rival nanny Miss Andrew and ladders rising to the stars. In the stage version, Mary Poppins is more sharp-tongued with a "tough love" approach to parenting at times.

PERFORMANCES: Performances will be staged at 7:30 p.m. February 19, 20 and 21 and at 2:30 p.m. February 22 in the Upper Arlington High School auditorium, 1650 Ridgeview Road.

TICKETS: General admission tickets may be purchased online at uavocalmusic.org by credit card for $10 for open seating or $12 to $16 for reserved selected seats.

People can also call 614-487-5240, ext. 7464, for ticket information. Group rates are available.

Tickets at the door must be paid for with cash or check only.
