Disney and Cameron Mackintosh today announced that their multi award-winning musical Mary Poppins will embark on a tour of the UK and Ireland, opening at Leicester Curve on Tuesday 13 October 2015.

Cameron Mackintosh said “It’s hard to believe that it is already 11 years since Mary Poppins first landed on the London stage. My goodness……time flies even faster than our beloved Nanny! I’m delighted to be bringing her back to the UK and for the first time to Dublin, after spreading her magic around the world. Since we originally staged the production we have found even more magical ways to stage this timeless tale and I’m sure you will find our new Mary practically perfect in every way”.

The magical story of the world’s favourite Nanny arriving on Cherry Tree Lane has been triumphantly and spectacularly brought to the stage with dazzling choreography, incredible effects and unforgettable songs. The stage version of Mary Poppins is brilliantly adapted from the wonderful stories by PL Travers and the beloved Walt Disney film.

The UK and Ireland tour will play the Leicester Curve, Bristol Hippodrome, Bord Gais Energy Theatre Dublin, Palace Theatre Manchester, Birmingham Hippodrome, Festival Theatre Dublin and Mayflower Theatre Southampton with further announcements to follow.
