MARY POPPINS STATEMENT REGARDING COVID-19

The Amici Trust Board, the G&T Productions Directors take the health, safety and wellbeing of our audiences, theatre staff, cast, crew, volunteers and contractors very seriously.

We are constantly monitoring this situation closely and in line with the latest COVID-19 advice, detailed yesterday by the New Zealand Government, regarding the cancelling of gatherings and public events of 500 or more people held outdoors or indoors, we regret to advise that the April season of Mary Poppins at the Bruce Mason Centre has been postponed.

As you can appreciate the fast moving COVID-19 crisis is causing uncertainty in every part of our society and we are continuing to work with all our key stakeholders in the weeks ahead to determine what the options are for this production of Mary Poppins. We will continue to provide updates as often as we can.

Ticket holders shall receive a full refund from the point of purchase.

As per the statement from the New Zealand Government there will be some time for the venues and ticketing agencies to cope with this additional workload while they work through the refund process for this event, so do ask for patience during this period.

We understand you will be very disappointed with this announcement however our patron safety is a primary consideration.

We know that as the arts and culture industry in New Zealand is resilient and look forward to seeing the communities continued support for this sector as the restrictions caused by the COVID-19 virus start to lift.

Thank you in advance for your understanding. Please stay safe and follow all Health guidelines.

Tickets available for purchase from 8th July

MARY POPPINS, THE BROADWAY MUSICAL RETURNS TO AUCKLAND THIS OCTOBER

First musical to hit The Civic since lockdown
Opens 2 October for strictly limited season

It’s the spoonful of sugar we all need right now! We are delighted to announce that MARY POPPINS, the much-loved Broadway musical, is returning to Auckland this October in a glorious new New Zealand production.

The world’s favourite nanny had been due to fly into Auckland in April but found herself in isolation like the rest of us. Being the true gale-force that she is, she wouldn’t be stopped and is soldiering on to bring magic to the stage once again. “Everything is possible, even the impossible!” says Mary.

WHEN THE WORLD TURNS UPSIDE DOWN, THE BEST THING TO DO IS TURN RIGHT ALONG WITH IT.MARY POPPINS

The season, featuring a dazzling, all-New Zealand cast, will open on 2 October for a strictly limited season. Tickets on sale on 8th July via Ticketmaster. So “head up, and feet beneath you”, book your tickets today. “Spit spot”!

FOR WHEN YOU DREAM, YOU’LL FIND ALL THAT’S LOST, IS FOUND.MARY POPPINS

The magical story of the world's favourite Nanny is triumphantly and spectacularly brought to the stage with dazzling choreography, incredible effects and unforgettable songs.

The stage production of MARY POPPINS is brilliantly adapted from the wonderful stories of P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, featuring dazzling choreography, incredible effects and unforgettable songs. And yes, Mary will fly!

It is co-created by Cameron Mackintosh and has a book by Oscar-winning screenwriter and Downton Abbey creator, Julian Fellowes. With a timeless score by Richard M Sherman and Robert B Sherman including the classic songs; Jolly Holiday, Step in Time, Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious and Feed the Birds with new songs and additional music and lyrics, including Practically Perfect, by the Olivier award-winning British team of George Stiles and Anthony Drewe

Mary Poppins helps us learn to take our medicine with a spoonful of sugar, find the silver lining in every situation, and realize that sometimes we should just use the winds of change to go fly a kite.

She brings order to the Banks household at 17 Cherry Tree Lane, takes Jane and Michael out on magical adventures, and dispenses sage advice, such as, "anything can happen if you let it".
