One of the most popular Disney movies of all time is capturing hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect musical!

 

The jack of all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the 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 she has a profound effect on. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen if you let it."

 

This production will SOAR with the aid of Flying by Foy, the theatrical flying service. Mary Poppins will be an enchanting mixture of irresistible story, unforgettable songs, breathtaking dance numbers, and astonishing stagecraft.

 

Mary Poppins will be performed on Friday, May 3rd at 7:30 PM, Saturday, May 4th at 7:30 PM, and Sunday, May 5th at 2 PM.

 

The show will be held at The Stadium Theatre, located at 28 Monument Square, Woonsocket Rhode Island.

The busy summer travel season gets underway this Memorial Day weekend. The head of the TSA says this will be the busiest summer travel season on record, with over 18-million people expected to be screened from now to May 29th. A spokesperson for Triple-A says they're forecasting nearly 44-million travelers from now through Monday, which would exceed pre-pandemic levels.        A bipartisan border bill is failing to clear the Senate for a second time in months. Senators voted 43 to 50 to tank the bill this afternoon negotiated in the fall by Democratic and Republican senators. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer put the bill on the floor for a vote after it was blocked in February by Republicans.        U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland is pushing back against recent claims made by former President Trump against the Justice Department and FBI. In a Truth Social post earlier this week, Trump said President Biden's DOJ "authorized the FBI to use deadly force" during the 2022 raid of Mar-a-Lago. On Thursday, Garland said "that allegation is false and extremely dangerous."        Hundreds of Harvard graduates are protesting the university's commencement ceremony after some pro-Palestinian demonstrators weren't allowed to receive their degrees. The graduates walked out of commencement this morning, chanting "Let them walk" in reference to the 13 undergraduates who the Harvard Corporation voted to bar from graduation. The protesters marched to the Harvard-Epworth United Methodist Church, where they staged a "Peoples' Commencement."        Supporters of research into long COVID are criticizing the Biden administration over its lack of enough funding in its NIH budget request. The Long COVID Campaign put out a press release calling on congressional leaders to set aside at least one-point-two million dollars for research. It says that despite long COVID's impact on the U.S. healthcare system and economy, the White House's budget request didn't prioritize research into the disease.        Police say the detective who arrested world number one golfer Scottie Scheffler made a mistake. Scheffler was charged with assault of a police officer as he was attempting to enter the PGA Championship in Kentucky last week. Today, Police Chief Jacquelyn Gwinn-Villaroel said the officer erred in not turning on his body camera, but the investigation into Scheffler is ongoing and the charges remain for now.
