Mary Poppins

Everyone’s favorite practically perfect nanny takes the stage in this Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious musical adventure presented by the Branson Regional Arts Council at the Historic Owen Theatre!

There will be 15 spectacular performances of Mary Poppins – The Broadway Musical from February 9 – 26, 2023 with shows on Thursdays (7pm), Fridays (7pm), Saturdays (2pm & 7pm), and Sundays (2pm).


For seven years a certain boy wizard went to a certain Wizard School and conquered evil. This, however, is not his story. This is the story of the Puffs… who just happened to be there too. A tale for anyone who has never been destined to save the world.

This clever and inventive play “never goes more than a minute without a laugh” giving you a new look at a familiar adventure from the perspective of three potential heroes just trying to make it through a magic school that proves to be very dangerous for children. Alongside them are the Puffs, a group of well-meaning, loyal outsiders with a thing for badgers “who are so lovable and relatable, you’ll leave the theater wishing they were in the stories all along”. Their “hilariously heartfelt!” and epic journey takes the classic story to new places and reimagines what a boy wizard hero can be.

Shows are March 17th, 18th, 19th, 24th, 25th, & 26th. Fridays and Saturdays at 7pm & Sundays at 2pm.

Stay tuned for more great live theatre that will be scheduled later in the year!
