Mary Poppins To Come to Australia

Disney’s multi-million dollar Broadway musical Mary Poppins is on its way to Australia.

Victorian state Premier John Brumby announced yesterday the show will open at Melbourne’s Her Majesty’s Theatre in July 2010.

BroadwayWorld.com claims the Australian production is among the first of many international versions of Mary Poppins planned over the next couple of years. So far the show has been seen by 4.2 million people worldwide and grossed $333 million.

The show marks a blow for Sydney, as Melbourne has nabbed the opening of yet another Broadway musical in Australia. In a few weeks time Wicked will begin its Sydney season, after opening in Melbourne last July. Meanwhile, last week the hit Broadway musical about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Jersey Boys, opened in Melbourne to strong reviews.

Mary Poppins opened on Broadway’s New Amsterdam Theatre in November 2006 and has since played over 1,100 performances. The musical was nominated for seven 2007 Tony Awards, winning Best Scenic Design For A Musical.

Auditions for the Australian production will commence in Melbourne in October this year.

Edit: Kids auditions now open to children not represented by casting agents. Applications close Monday 16 November. Download form below.

  2. Stella McMahon says:

    Please could you let me know when auditions for Mary Poppins (or the children’s parts) will be held in Brisbane or where we send audition cd or letter applying for auditions.

    I can’t seem to find this information in any of the media releases or on the Disney site.

    Would very much appreciate the help.

    Thank you for your time

    Dear Parents,

    Please read the post before commenting here. It is highly unlikely “open” auditions will be occurring for Mary Poppins in Australia. Your son/daughter will need to be represented by a casting agent who will receive notification of audition details.

  30. admin says:

    Thanks for your comments Smarty Pants. Hopefully this will clarify things for a lot of people on here.

    Justin

  31. Smarty pants says:

    In most cases these auditions are open to agent submission only. You stage mums out there who’s child is an amazing talent should seek professional representation. If your child is a star through the audition process your child should be easily able to land an agent who will then give you audition information. Do your research. Some auditions will be open to public and for this reason will be publically published for example the recent open call for spring awakening and years ago the von trapp kids in the sound of music. These are usually how few and far between open calls are. The only others are theme parks when they are 18 and Australian idol etc
