Take it from us here at RSVP, it is “practically perfect in every way!” A flick for children and adults alike, every age group can find magic in the beloved story of Mary Poppins. Whether you grew up watching the movie or have never seen it, ASF’s version of Mary Poppins will entertain you for the entire duration. Watch as the magical nanny, Mary Poppins, works to mend the Banks family’s fractured relationship. The plot is truly supercalifragilisticexpialidocious and the acting is an equal match. A live orchestra manages to keep the perfect beat, ideal for a musical like this.
