“With every job when it’s complete, there is a sense of bittersweet, that moment when you know the task is done.” And so comes that point with Payson Community Theater! The cast of Mary Poppins has been working hard memorizing music, script and dance routines to produce a fantastic production in conjunction with Payson Onion Days Celebration!
The fruits of their job will be presented to the public on August 23, and run the 24, 25, 27, 30, 31, September 1, and closed Labor Day, September 3. All shows are at 7:30 p.m., except September 3, which will present at 3:00 p.m.
Tickets for this production can be purchased online at paysoncommunitytheater.com or at Napa Auto Parts, 190 E. 100 N., Payson. They are $10.00 each, and are also available at the door of Payson High School, 1050 S. Main St., before the event begins.
Colton and Avonlea Simons star in the parts of Bert and Mary Poppins, respectively. They have both been involved in prior PCT productions, and are excited to be sharing these roles for your enjoyment.
Ben Spencer and Carson Center, new to PCT this year, play the parts of George and Winifred Banks. Their talents are equally welcome to the PCT stage.
The Banks family roles are completed with Gracie Morton, playing Jane, and Nolan Larsen, presenting Michael. The Banks children are spoiled little ones until Mary Poppins enters to change their lives, as well as that of their parents, George and Winifred.
Come prepared to have a Supercalifragilistic experience, as Payson Community Theater presents the Broadway Musical, Mary Poppins.
