Audition Description

The beloved Disney classic tale follows the story of young Jane and Michael, who have sent many a nanny packing before a magical new person arrives on their doorstep. Utilizing a combination of snarky wit and common sense, Mary Poppins must teach the Banks family how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren't the only ones upon whom she has a profound effect -- even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the practically perfect nanny.


Parents should also attend the initial audition to help fill out forms. Hopefuls will need to bring 16-32 bars (or about one minute) from a song that they would like to sing (sheet music or a CD, MP3 track with no background voices are acceptable), and a headshot/resume if they have one. If you don't know a song, "Happy Birthday" or "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" are acceptable.

  • The narrator of the story, is a good friend to Mary Poppins. An everyman, Bert has many occupations, including hurdy-gurdy player, sidewalk artist and chimney sweep. Bert watches over the children as well as the goings on in Cherry Tree Lane. He has charm, speaks with a Cockney accent and is a song-and-dance man. Vocal range top: F#4. Vocal range bottom: B2.

  • Role #2 - George Banks

    The father to Jane and Michael Banks, is a banker to the very fiber of his being. Demanding "precision and order" in his household, he is a pipe-and-slippers man who doesn't have much to do with his children and believes that he had the perfect upbringing by his nanny, the cruel Miss Andrew. His emotional armor, however, conceals a sensitive soul. A baritone, George may speak-sing as necessary. Vocal range top: Eb4. Vocal range bottom: Bb2.
