Mary Poppins

#42 on my 101 list is to see a few stage shows or musicals that I’ve never seen. I love shows, but they can be a little pricey. I’m not sure I would complete this one if I hadn’t moved home with a mama who also loves shows. Last week we ventured to the Fox Theater to see Mary Poppins! I was excited because I love the movie – I, however, had not thought about the fact that it would be different than the movie as the stage production is based on the book!

It was a great show – just had some additional songs and a little different order. The general storyline was a little different also. But all the classics were there – the dancing was great and the kids who played Michael and Jane were amazing. I definitely recommend it – just don’t expect your classic, happy-go-lucky Mary Poppins.

Spoonful of Sugar

#46 on my 101 list is definitely worth the money – to buy 3 classic Disney movies on DVD. I already owned many of them, but there were a few keys ones that I needed to add to the collection. So while waiting for my credit on sold books at McKay, I browsed through the kids DVDs. They are really not any cheaper even there because most of them are actually new – but I had enough credit to cover one and some books I had nabbed off the shelves. It was a difficult decision, but I ended up with Mary Poppins because you just really can’t beat a Disney sing-a-long. I am pretty sure it’s the best music a Disney movie has to offer.

I grew up watching Mary Poppins all the time – spending summers with my grandmother I would grab a large bag and pretend that I had my whole life in it. And would, of course, pretend I could float out of the sky with my umbrella. It’s definitely a must own.
