Disney Theatrical Productions MARY POPPINS HOLDS OPEN CASTING CALLS FOR CHILDREN IN ATLANTA

The highly successful and award-winning Broadway and upcoming touring productions of MARY POPPINS will be holding open casting calls in Atlanta for children who can sing, dance, and act on Sunday, April 13.

Jennifer Rudin, Director of Casting and Talent Development for Disney Theatrical Productions in New York City, will be conducting the auditions. Jennifer spent five years as head of casting for Walt Disney Animation Studios in Los Angeles and cast the following animated movies to name a few: Chicken Little, The Incredibles, Meet the Robinsons, The Wild and Brother Bear. Jennifer serves on the Board of Directors for the Casting Society of America.

We are also pleased to announce the debut of MARY POPPINS in Atlanta as part of the 2009-2010 season for Fidelity Investments Broadway Across America – Atlanta.

Combining the best of the original stories by P. L. Travers and the beloved Walt Disney film, the Tony® Award-winning MARY POPPINS is everything you'd hope for in a Broadway musical—and like nothing you'd ever expect. Produced by Disney and Cameron Mackintosh, the show includes such wonderful songs as “Chim Chim Cher-ee,” “A Spoonful of Sugar,” “Let’s Go Fly a Kite,” and, of course, “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.” The NY Daily News hails MARY POPPINS as “a roof-raising, toe-tapping, high-flying extravaganza!”

JANE BANKS (11 years old) Pretty and attractive girl. Exuberant but willful.
Thoughtless, short-tempered and untidy. Occasionally inclined to snobbishness.
