Playing Mr Banks

Posted on 28-04-2015

From Bottle Tree Lane to Cherry Tree Lane, Brendon Walmsley returns to the Empire Theatre in this year's production of Mary Poppins.

The Disney classic comes to life onstage in this musical for the whole family. Based on the beloved children's stories by P.L Travers, this fun and magic filled adventure begins when busy banker George Banks (played by Brendon) and his wife Winifred (played by Lisa Skerman, "Phantom of the Opera" and "Rose & Rodeo") call for a sensibly stern nanny for their children Jane and Michael.†

When a mysterious young nanny named Mary Poppins drops in, their lives change forever, in the most delightful way. Together with Bert the chimney sweep, the children go on magical and memorable adventures around London, meeting new friends on the way.

Mary's contageous kindness, fun, free-spiritedness and magic melt the heart of all who meet her - perhaps even the stone-faced Mr Banks. After all, anything can happen if you let it!

Featuring a fantastic local cast performing all your favourite songs from the Disney film including Jolly Holiday, A Spoonful of Sugar, Feed The Birds and Chim Chim Cher-ee
Mary Poppins is a show the whole family will love, sure to delight and enthral each and every audience member. You'll want to fly a kite and dance over the rooftops! So spit spot - book your tickets now! www.empiretheatre.com.au
