Encore holds auditions for ‘Mary Poppins’ September 24 & 25

MORRISTOWN - Encore Theatrical Company announces auditions for “Mary Poppins,” the final show of the 10th anniversary season. 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.

The 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.

Auditions will be held on Saturday, September 24 and Sunday, September 25 at 2:00 p.m. The auditions will be held at the Inman Humanities Complex located on the campus of Walters State Community College. The production team will be casting approximately 25-30 people for the production, including one boy and one girl (approximately ages 10-12).

Those wishing to audition should prepare 32 bars of a musical theatre selection in the style of the show. Please bring a copy of the sheet music in the correct key. An accompanist will be provided. There will also be a dance portion of the audition. Please dress accordingly or bring comfortable clothes and shoes to change into. There may also be some readings from the script.

The production will begin rehearsals mid-October with performances scheduled for December 2-18. For more information regarding the production or auditions, please visit
