Have a supercalifragilistic time at Mary Poppins

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!

    I had seen the months of rehearsals that had gone into the production of the musical. Seeing it all pieced together, it was an amazing preformace that left me wanting to hear each song after the next. On stage The ensemble looked like they were having fun with every dance scene. I wish l could’ve watched the preformace of “Step in Time” on repeat. Definitely one of my favorite productions from the drama department here at CVHS.

    I went to watch Mary Poppins on March 31st to support several of my friends who were in the show. The show as a whole was nearly flawless and overall outstanding. Everything including the costumes, actors, and sets were very professional. I’m very proud of my friends and fellow CVHS students for their excellent performance!
