Mary Poppins the musical is coming to West Palm Beach Jan. 29 – Feb. 3 at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. The beloved tale of the magical nanny will come to life with song and dance. The talented cast is taking their Broadway hit on the road and touring the country.
The Mary Poppins musical is based on the 1964 Disney film and a series of children’s books written by P.L. Travers. The US version of the show opened on Broadway in November 2006. The final performance in New York City will be Sunday, March 3 at the New Amsterdam Theater. The show will most likely be replaced by the new musical “Aladdin”.
The antics of Jane and Michael Banks are remedied by a spoonful of sugar and so much more as we witness the magical nanny Mary Poppins in action. In addition to the favorite songs from the movie the musical version has added scenes adapted from the books and additional song and dance numbers. If you are in the West Palm Beach area grab some tickets and head to Cherry Tree Lane for a show to remember.
The Kravis Center for the Performing Arts will have a pre-performance discussion by Jason Gillman and Jacqueline Bayne at 6:45 pm and a free musical presentation by Seminole Ridge High School in the Dreyfoos Hall lobby at 7:15 pm on Jan. 29.

The Kravis Center welcomes the cooperation of its patrons to help make a visit to our theatre enjoyable for everyone. At every performance our security staff works with officers from the West Palm Beach Police Department to ensure that traffic moves in a quick, orderly and safe manner. Please follow the directions of the officers and Kravis Center staff who are there to facilitate the movement of traffic in and out of the Center. Remember, backing into parking spaces slows all traffic so we ask that when you park, pull forward into your designated space as directed. Also, allow ample time to arrive at the Kravis Center.
Additional parking is available in other parking garages in close proximity to the Center, such as CityPlace, and metered parking is available on Sapodilla Avenue to the east of the Center and on Iris Street to the north. Valet parking is available for most Kravis Center events for a fee of $12 regular service/$20 premium service. The valet parking service entrance is on Okeechobee Boulevard.
