The premiere of the CVHS production of “Mary Poppins” will open to a very supercalifragilistic start at 7 p.m. on March 17. The old Disney musical has been revamped into an amazing production that will be put on by students from many different CVHS departments such as drama, band, orchestra, choir, and even American Sign Language
“My favorite part of it all is being able to meet new people that I normally don’t hang out with,” said junior Kyle Estabillo, who plays a chimney sweep.
The show will be filled with plenty of magic that is sure to capture the audience’s eye. Not only will the props be flying around stage, but Mary Poppins and Burt will fly as well.
All throughout the performance, the cast will marvel the audience with catchy songs and intricate dance numbers. “I’m really excited for “Step in Time” because it involves a huge dance number,” said Estabillo.
The cast has put countless hours of rehearsal into the play. This musical has a very advanced score of music to accompany it and the orchestra has been doing an amazing job in making the play come to life. These talented people have brought back all of the classics including, “A Spoonful of Sugar” and “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.”
“ I really like being a part of the musical because it brings people together. We put in a lot of hard work and it’s really nice to see everything come together,” said senior Carly Becerra who will portray the story’s antagonist, Miss Andrews.
Tickets for the show will be $15-$20 at the CFA box office. They can also be bought online at the CFA website. The play will be performed March 17-19, as well as the March 24-26. Show times will remain the same both weekends, at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. on Sundays. Be sure to see it!
