SPOON­FUL OF SUGAR

Townsville Bulletin - - FRONT PAGE -

THERE is some “su­per­cal­ifrag­ilis­tic­ex­pi­ali­do­cious” news for fans of one of the world’s time­less tales.

The Townsville Choral So­ci­ety will present Mary Pop

pins, the Broad­way mu­si­cal, to lo­cal au­di­ences next month.

Peggy Pul­virenti said the show was an “am­bi­tious one” for the choral so­ci­ety.

“Mary is go­ing to fly and there are lots of other sur­prises,” she said. “It will be one of our big­gest stage shows and we will be the first to bring it to North Queens­land.”

The ma­jor advertising push has yet to start but about 3000 tick­ets to the show have al­ready been sold.

Ms Pul­virenti said the show would fea­ture lo­cal ac­tors with two sets of chil­dren ro­tat­ing the leads. “The sets are enor­mous and spe­cial,” she said. There are 60 or 70 peo­ple in the ensem­ble alone.”

The au­di­ence will hear some of the old favourites from the clas­sic tale in­clud­ing Su­per­cal­ifrag­ilis­tic­ex­pi­ali­do­cious, Chim Chi­meny, Feed the Birds,

and A Spoon­ful of Sugar.

Tick­ets cost $ 55 for adults, $ 50 con­ces­sion, $ 25 for school stu­dents/ chil­dren and $ 35 for ter­tiary stu­dents. A fam­ily pass for two adults and two chil­dren costs $ 140. The show runs from Au­gust 26 un­til Septem­ber 2 at the Townsville Civic Theatre.
