While we also produce a Winter Cabaret and One-Act Play each year, the cornerstone of Upper Room Theatre Ministry is our summer musicals. Started in 2002, our award-winning July shows have been playing to sold-out audiences, so don’t miss out!
And this year, our 18th anniversary production is is Broadway’s Mary Poppins! One of the most popular movies of all time is capturing hearts in a whole new way…as a “practically perfect” Broadway musical! Based on the stories of P.L. Travers’ and the classic Disney film, this magical musical is filled with spoonfuls of imagination, heart, and whimsy. You and your family will be swept away by such iconic tunes as “Step in Time, “Chim Chim Cher-ee” and, of course, “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.”
Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins delighted Broadway audiences for over 2,500 performances and received nominations for nine Olivier and seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. But don’t worry if you missed it in New York, because we’re bringing Broadway to Manassas for you!
Mark your calendars now for July 16-21, 2019. Ticket sales begin June 18 and they will surely fly out the door quickly! Be sure not to miss the magic of Mary Poppins, who teaches us that “anything can happen if you let it.”
We feel blessed and honored that our productions have been recognized not only by our audiences, but also by our theater peers.
