Witness a Beautiful Take on a Classic Film When the Kansas City Symphony Performs on Friday

The Kansas City Symphony is excited to present Mary Poppins in Concert: Film + Live Orchestra!

Grab your family and friends to witness the magic unfold in this theatrical favorite at Kauffman Center on Friday, November 29th. Winner of five Academy Awards (including Best Original Music Score) and starring the incomparable Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, don’t miss Kansas City Symphony performing the charming live soundtrack with the film on Thanksgiving weekend. This magical family musical is based on the series of children’s books by P.L. Travers and the 1964 Disney film starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke.

George and Winifred live at Number 17, Cherry Tree Lane with their misbehaved children, whose latest nanny has just quit with a fit. Enter Mary Poppins, the “practically perfect” nanny who teaches with magic and bonds with the children as no other nanny has. When Mary suddenly leaves the position, and Winifred hires George’s childhood nanny to take on the job, George and the children flee from the house, making Mary more valuable than ever.

With patience, kindness, and a little bit of magic, Mary and her friend Bert help the family set things right – maybe more right than they’d been before. Boasting exuberant favorites like “A Spoonful of Sugar” and “Chim Chim Cher-ee,” this magical Disney classic gave audiences some of the most cherished songs of all time. Now, experience this family favorite once more at Kauffman Center on Friday night!
