date: October 10 - 24, 2015
time: 2:00 pm or 7:30 pm, depending on date
location: State Theater, 985 Lincoln Way Auburn
fee: $8-$22

Placer Community Theater will soon be presenting one of Broadway's best-loved family musicals, Mary Poppins. Based on the books by P.L. Travers, and the classic Walt Disney film, Disney and Cameron Mackintoshs Mary Poppins amazed and delighted Broadway audiences for over 2,500 performances and received nominations for nine Olivier and seven TONY Awards, including Best Musical. Join us for Placer Community Theaters exciting live version of this family musical in October. Evening performances will be presented at 7:30 pm October 10, 16, 17, 23 & 24. 2:00 pm matinee performances will be offered October 11, 17, 18 & 24. Tickets and information at

The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family how to value each other. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical, memorable, and surprisingly comical adventures, but Jane and Michael arent the only ones she has a profound effect upon; even grown-ups learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen if you let it."

This program showcases the talents of over thirty cast and crew members from Auburn, Grass Valley, and surrounding communities. Audiences are sure to recognize classic songs like, "Spoonful of Sugar," "Chim-Chim-Cher-ee," the showstopping "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious," and Walt Disney's personal favorite song, "Feed the Birds."

Tickets may be purchased in person at the State Theater lobby on three Fridays, September 25, October 2 & 9, between the hours of noon and 2:00 pm. Tickets may also be purchased by calling 530-852-2708, or online through Ticket prices for this event are $22 for adult reserved seating, $18 for seniors/teens/groups of 10 or more, and $8 children.
