The Australian premiere of Mary Poppins kicks off in Sydney tomorrow night, with the outstanding cast and crew to bring spoonfuls of sugar to our state-of-the-art Sydney Lyric Theatre.
The NSW Government, through its tourism and major event agency Destination NSW, is proud to support Disney Theatrical, Sir Cameron Mackintosh and Michael Cassel Group in bringing this superb new production of a timeless classic to life.
Minister for Enterprise, Investment and Trade and Minister for Tourism Stuart Ayres said this world-class production is a further demonstration that Sydney is open for business and welcoming visitors to enjoy our vast cultural offerings and hospitality.
“Whether you are young or young at heart, Mary Poppins remains one of the world’s favourite musicals and Sydneysiders and visitors to Sydney are about to experience it like never before,” Mr Ayres said.
“Spectacularly brought to the stage with dazzling choreography, incredible effects, and unforgettable songs, this is a production that defies the ages.
“I would like to thank and congratulate Sir Cameron Mackintosh, Disney Theatrical Productions and the Michael Cassel Group for bringing this practically perfect production to Sydney and helping reboot our creative industries, as we recover from a very challenging time for NSW. ”
“I wish the cast and crew every success and strongly encourage Sydneysiders to go and experience the magic of Mary.”
The NSW Government is committed to investing in premium productions like Mary Poppins to showcase Sydney as the nation’s culture and events capital to achieve our goal of making NSW the premier economy of the Asia Pacific.
