Mary Poppins The Musical - Auckland 2012
Wednesday, 24 October 2012
The world’s most magical musical arrives at The Civic, Auckland this October.
Based on the beloved books by P.L. Travers and the 1964 Walt Disney film, the multi-award winning musical MARY POPPINS will play The Civic, Auckland for a strictly limited season.
Produced by Cameron Mackintosh and Thomas Schumacher for Disney Theatrical Productions, the New Zealand production of MARY POPPINS follows productions in London, New York, Australia, and Holland as well as British and North American touring productions.
Worldwide to date, the show has grossed over (US) $679 million and welcomed almost 10 million guests. The musical is the winner of 44 major theatre awards around the globe, including Tony®, Olivier, Helpmann and Evening Standard awards.
The New Zealand production of MARY POPPINS comes straight from extraordinary success in Australia. The production opened in Melbourne July 2010 playing to 100% sold out houses for nine months. Equally successful seasons followed in Sydney, Brisbane & Perth, with both Brisbane and Perth selling out weeks before closing. The production was seen by 1.35 million people and has set new records at every venue played in Australia for pre-sales and advance sales. In 2011, MARY POPPINS won a record breaking 8 Australian Helpmann Awards, including Best Musical.
“We at Disney Theatricals are thrilled to be presenting our first-ever production in New Zealand when Mary Poppins arrives in Auckland this spring,” said Thomas Schumacher, producer Disney Theatrical Productions. “The Walt Disney Company has been in the lives of New Zealanders for decades through its movies, television programs and licensing of our theatrical titles, but it’s especially gratifying to be bringing the unparalleled experience of live theatre – especially this spectacular original production overseen by the show’s original creative team. We hope it’s embraced as warmly there as it has been in its nearly two years in Australia.
Auckland Mayor Len Brown said an Auckland season of MARY POPPINS is a great outcome for the region. “Mary Poppins is another world-class event and Auckland is a world-class entertainment destination. We know that Aucklanders will love the chance to see this spectacular, and the show will attract many visitors to the region who will also enjoy our hospitality and retail offerings. It’s great tosee the collaboration by Regional Facilities Auckland (RFA) and Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) to secure Mary Poppins for Auckland.”
