Disney’s ‘Mary Poppins’ flies onto Fort Peck Summer Theater stage

It’s a perfect evening for the entire family when the world’s most famous nanny flies into town, as only Fort Peck Summer Theatre can do it. Loaded with tap-dancing, magic and special effects, get ready to hum along to all your favorite tunes, as Disney’s classic film comes alive on stage for the first time at FPST.

Starring as Mary Poppins and Bert are Glasgow native Quinn Vaira and FPST Artistic Director Andy Meyers.  This will mark Vaira and Meyers’ 17th appearance together, having played opposite each other as Mrs. and Mr. Bucket in “Willy Wonka,” Marian and Harold in “The Music Man,” and Fiona and Shrek in “Shrek.”

Two sets of young actors alternate in the roles of Jane and Michael Banks:  Kaylin Poirier of Saskatoon, Canada, Ali Kuka of Glasgow, Kaitlyn Miller of Nashua and Chloe Sutter of Miles City.

“Mary Poppins” is directed and choreographed by Heather Adams, founder and director of Downtown Dance Collective in Missoula, whose previous FPST credits include “Always…Patsy Cline,” “The Music Man” and “A Grand Night for Singing.” Alicia Bullock-Muth returns as musical director, and to play the Bird Woman.  

Performances are July 29-Aug. 14:  Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., with Sunday matinees at 4 p.m. Please allow yourself extra time to get to the show on time as there is road construction between Glasgow and Fort Peck, as well as between Nashua and Fort Peck. 

For tickets or reservations, the Fort Peck Summer Theatre Box Office at (406) 526-9943 will open at the top of the season. Tickets can also be purchased at the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce located at 313 Klein Ave. (in the Plains Plaza) in Glasgow.
