Mary has soared triumphantly around the globe and our recent Australian production discovered two of the most delightful Mary and Berts ever - Stefanie Jones and Jack Chambers - whom I'm thrilled to be bringing to the United Kingdom and Ireland to star in this spectacular new National tour. They are heading a wonderful cast and I'm sure you will find this the most magical production of Mary Poppins ever, practically perfect in every way!”
