Sing along to beloved songs like “Spoonful of Sugar,” “Jolly Holiday,” and “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” and learn some new songs in this whimsical musical based on P. L. Travers's cherished stories and the classic 1964 Walt Disney film. Mary Poppins has received seven Tony Award nominations, including one for Best Musical.
