Audition Description

Based on the stories by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, Mary Poppins takes us on a magical and thrilling journey. When a mysterious nanny suddenly appears at the Banks household in Edwardian London to care for Jane and Michael Banks, adventure abounds. As she whisks them away to teach them that magic can be found in everyday life, Jane and Michael (and their parents) discover the true meaning of family.


Prepare 32 bars of an appropriate song (not from Mary Poppins) that shows range and personality. Bring sheet music or a suitable music track. Please no acapella auditions. Children will participate in some audition games and movement exercises. Adults should dress for a dance/movement exercise with appropriate footwear. Bring tap shoes if you have them.

  • 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.

I got a role in an up coming movie It has been a great experience being with Explore Talent. Going in for an audition competing amongst ourselves for role that best fits us leaves you with a knott in your throat when you get a call back or a response telling you that you got a role in the movie. Which makes you know that you did an excellent job at what you went in for. Of corse you go in with butterflies in your stomach and that must be the main obsticle to get through but when you do your best and give it your all nothing can come between the passion one has for acting or doing what they enjoy the most . To say that I got a role in an up coming movie that I got in through Explore Talent, with some assistance of a wonderful person of course!! The service at explore talent is excellent also. Their up to date calander and in general the system they use. Customer service... WOW!!! There is one particular person I would like to personally Thank... Francisco!! You are great !!
