West Windsor, N.J. – Audiences can travel back to jolly ol’ England as Theater To Go presents an interactive presentation of the Oscar-winning Disney classic film “Mary Poppins” at Mercer County Community College’s Kelsey Theatre. The movie sing-along will take place on Friday, Aug. 2 at 7 p.m.; Saturday, Aug. 3 at 2 p.m.; and Sunday, Aug. 4 at 2 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on the college’s West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.
Join the "practically perfect" nanny Mary Poppins for a "Jolly Holiday" as she magically turns every chore into a game and every day into a whimsical adventure. Along the way, audiences will become enchanted by unforgettable characters such as the multi-talented chimney sweep Bert, played by Dick Van Dyke.
This 1964 movie continues to pull lasting magic from its cinematic carpetbag of tricks, including extraordinary animation, dazzling special effects, and award-winning music and dance.
“Mary Poppins” received a total of 13 Oscar nominations, an unsurpassed record for any film released by Walt Disney Studios. The musical won awards for Best Film Editing, Original Music Score, Best Song, Best Visual Effects, and Best Actress for Julie Andrews in the title role.
The movie sing-along will be led by Kelsey Theatre veteran actors Elizabeth Rzasa of Lawrenceville dressed as Mary Poppins and Casey Woods of Sayerville dressed as Bert, who will guide the activities, introduce the film, and of course, sing along with everyone to the lyrics on the screen.
A costume contest, trivia contest, and interactive games will be part of the event, along with an audience participation kit including kazoos, bubbles and noise makers.
