Yes it is sset to take the UK by storm.

It was, Schumacher insists, his choice to concentrate solely on theatre. It's where he began his career and remains his first love. What's more, he will be spending a good deal of his time in Britain, not least because he is co-producing the eagerly awaited stage version of Mary Poppins with our own Cameron Mackintosh.

Richard Eyre is slated to direct it, but suggestions that Kate Winslet will play the magical nanny are wide of the mark. Schumacher promises, however, that the show will involve predominantly British talent.

CAN'T WAIT!!!!

I've always wondered why Disney with all of their technology for the stage had not done this. Always thought it would be a good one for Sandy Duncan, don't know why.

I don't mind that is going back to the original story at all.

Young performers to the Manor born
By MERERID WILLIAMS for The Scotsman

AS the curtains parted, mothers and fathers waved frantically as sons and daughters hopped, skipped and jumped from the wings of the Church Hill Theatre last night.

But the pupils of the Manor School of Ballet were too immersed in their production of the magical tale of Mary Poppins to notice their parents’ excitement.

The opening performance of this year’s show from the Edinburgh ballet school saw children from the Murrayfield and Corstorphine branches perform to a sold-out auditorium and confirmed the school’s professional attitude towards the teachings of ballet, jazz and tap, all of which featured during the course of the show. Energetic, confident and disciplined, the young dancers did well to remember their every step and looked graceful throughout - especially the older more experienced students who no doubt have high aspirations for the future.

theatrical giants is set to finally bring Mary Poppins to the stage. By Matt Wolf




It’s traditional, in the theatre, to think of the great partnerships being on stage rather than off: Gielgud and Richardson, Finney and Courtenay, Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronyn. But a recent Saturday found me down in Somerset, in what was once a 13th-century priory, to discuss the biggest behind-the-scenes theatrical pairing of our time: the first collaboration between Sir Cameron Mackintosh, the British musicals impresario, and Thomas Schumacher, the American head of Disney Theatrical Productions.
