The deadline to purchase tickets for Mary Poppins at the Merry-Go-Round Playhouse has passed. Thanks to everyone who decided to attend. Enjoy the show!

It's sure to be a "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" day for the young and young at heart -- indubitably! Join WRVO for a live performance of Mary Poppins at the Merry-Go-Round Playhouse in Auburn on Monday, June 30.

About the performance:

When Mary Poppins, the perfect nanny, arrives at 17 Cherry Tree Lane to care for the Banks children their eyes are opened to a series of magical adventures and lessons. Based on the stories  of P. L. Travers and the classic Disney movie. Enjoy all of the famous songs, like: "Spoonful of Sugar," "Let's Go Fly a Kite," and the infectious "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious." It's full of catchy lyrics and toe-tapping entertainment. This particular performance is a production of Disney and Cameron Mckintosh.


Our lunch begins at noon at the Springside Inn, 6141 West Lake Road in Auburn, 13021. The Merry-Go-Round Playhouse is located at 6877 East Lake Road in Auburn, 13021. Just a quick drive from lunch to our matinee performance. Parking is available in the upper and lower lots surround the Playhouse for $2 (regular), or $1 (senior citizens/handicapped).

If you have questions about the performance or ticketing, please contact Bonnie at (315) 312-1049 -- and thanks for supporting local theater with WRVO.
