Project: “Mary Poppins”

Rehearsals begin June 16, 2016; runs July 10-Aug. 2, 2016 in Birmingham, AL.
Seeking George Banks (Supporting): Male, 40-49, All Ethnicities: baritone; the father to Jane and Michael Banks, a banker to the very fiber of his being; demanding “precision and order” in his household, he is a pipe-and-slippers man who doesn’t have much to do with his children and believes that he had the perfect upbringing by his nanny, the cruel Miss Andrew; his emotional armor, however, conceals a sensitive soul; a baritone, George may speak-sing as necessary;
Ensemble (Supporting): Males & Females, 18-40, All Ethnicities: seeking males and females with strong singing and dancing skills; tap is a must;
Bert (Lead): Male, 26-40, All Ethnicities: baritone to G; the narrator of the story, a good friend to Mary Poppins; an everyman, Bert has many occupations, including hurdy-gurdy player, sidewalk atist, and chimney sweep; Bert watches over the children as well as the goings-on in Cherry Tree Lane; he has charm, speaks with a Cockney accent, and is a song-and-dance-man.
Be prepared to sing 16-32 bars that are suited for the show, highlighting your voice. Dancers, bring tap and character shoes. Seeking union and non-union males, and non-union females. Producer plans to apply for an Equity agreement.
