See the magic of ‘Mary Poppins’

Hat stands will get pulled from carpetbags. Children will be swept up chimneys. People and tables float. All the magic of Mary Poppins will be on display this weekend in a production by the Antioch School older group.

The play is free of charge and starts and at 7 p.m. Friday and 12:30 p.m. Saturday at the Clifton Opera House. Donations will be accepted to offset production costs and fund scholarships at the school.

In line with the 90-year-old alternative school’s educational philosophy of self-directed learning, each year older group students (grades 4–6) select a play, choose their parts, design their costumes, build sets and arrange special effects. The magical world of Mary Poppins has posed a special challenge to students who have to figure out how to create the impossible. As for the secrets behind the illusions, audiences have to see for themselves.
