July 30-August 3: Mary Poppins

Jane and Michael Banks aren't well-behaved children. In fact, they can be quite naughty and have sent several caretakers packing. But Mary Poppins isn’t your average nanny. She sings, she flies and with a pinch of magic, and a crash course in etiquette, she might be able to teach the kids and their parents how to behave in a loving, civilized manner. You can see the musical at Shenandoah University in Winchester through Sunday.
